I Dare You To Dream

Life is hard, especially for those who refuse to settle. When you're young, you have all these hopes and dreams but the hardest time in my opinion is that period of life where you're in between being young and approaching real adulthood. A time where you have to sensibly decide whether you're still going to reach for the stars or whether, it's time to give up and settle for less. 
There is safety in settling. To purposely gain more responsibilities to distract you from the fact that you just gave up... I wonder if it's more, or less painful to give up... 
To dare to dream is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. They say it all gets better with time, but honestly for me, it only gets harder as the years go by. 
The good and the bad thing about me is, I refuse to quit. Although, it does make me wonder how much more pain I have to endure before I get 'there'.
Tomorrow I'm sure I'll be fine. Hopeful, determined and focused but today, I'm doubting everything...




I wrote this song a few months ago but the words are more real to me now, than ever before

I Dare You To Dream 
written by Bisa 2011

I see it deep inside,
and all I want is in my heart
Though we're still apart
all my hope lives in my heart

It will not delay, Though it tarries wait for it
(Feels so near, so far, so Near)

I think I'm almost there, and it can't be long
But then I realise
I'm living life on a dare
(Not much longer baby)

Now I'm sitting, waiting, wondering why did I go and dare to dream
 Now I'm sitting, waiting, wondering why did I have to dare to dream

I see it deep inside,
and all I want is in my heart
Though we're still apart
but all my hope lives in my heart

(Feels so near, so far, so Near)

I think I'm almost there, and it can't be long
But then I realise
I'm living life on a dare
(Not much longer baby)

Now I'm sitting, waiting, wondering why did I go and dare to dream
 Now I'm sitting, waiting, wondering why did I have to dare to dream

I'm trying my best to progress and get on with it, 
No turning back
'Cause I'm haunted by the prophesy,
Can't let it go, holding on to what's in front of me
As much as it hurts, to believe is my only remedy
(repeat)

I dare you to dream
If you think you're strong
I dare you to dream
If you think you're strong

I dare you to dream

(Not much longer baby)
