People say "you're good at art" you should be an artist someday
My brain starts thinking excessively and I don't know what to say
Right now, there's Coronavirus but how am I to know. What the future holds for me I don't know where to go
Should I just be happy and should I just have a laugh?
Or should I have mental breakdown I just don't know who to ask
This is the least of the worries on people’s minds and thoughts
I am trying not worry but I'm thinking bout it lots
I want to have a dream where I can fly away
And be forever young, that's the way I want to stay
You're too old for this, too young for that I don't believe that anyway
I just want to escape reality and make my dreams come true today
When they say it's impossible, I will be there to say
"My dream will not come tomorrow I will make it come today"
Whether it’s a dream or not I will not let anyone say
"You can't do that it’s a dream just forget it and throw it away"
Right now, life may be hard but how are health workers managing their days? How are shop keepers, people that lost their jobs, being positive in a way?
How about the homeless people what would they say? It's harder than you think to keep your dreams alive Just find something that stimulates your mind
You’re not being lonely
You will always have yourself
And if you think about it
You will achieve your dreams with patience, determination and help mostly from yourself.
