About the Poem

I wrote this after a very heart breaking day...I always grew up believing that you can have all you want if you try with all you have and never give up. Everyone around me laughed and said I have much to learn, that most dreams don't come true... I know you can't have all you want because I've been there and I cried because I thought it was impossible for me to fail.. I always though I was a strong person who stood up for what I believed. Now I begin to understand that it's not whether you fail as long as you fail trying!!!!!

As we lead our different lives
There are days when all is wrong
When nothing seems right

When you feel like
The deep blue sky will fall on you
Yet you don't seem to mind

When the unexpected happens
When you worst fears become reality
When your dreams are shattered to pieces
When you realize
That you can't have all you want

When they tell you
"I told you so"
For believing in what they call foolish dreams
When they tell you to grow up
When they tell you to deal with it
When they say give it up and move on

You look at the stars and you softly cry
Saying that life isn't for those who give up
You wipe your tears and take a deep breath
As you say to yourself "You can't have all you want
But you can never give up
on trying to have as much as you can......"
