I want to take hold of my life and turn it around, so it becomes something I actually want... But my dreams stay dreams and the reality too far for my taste. :) Hope you like it!

Dreaming harder than ever before,
For my dreams are as far as the stars.
Leaving me unquenched,
And waiting for something much too far.

I reach out to take hold of my life,
But it jumps away,
Laughing, amused, saying,
'Today just isn't the day!'

How can I take control?
How can I possibly get what I want?
When everything holds me down,
Reveling in the fact that I can't.

So I fight to stay strong,
Fighting to get out of this cage,
Trying to come out on top of all this,
But every failed attempt leaves me to rage.

Every word you say,
Trying to convince me,
I can only say, why should I stay?
I only want to fly and become free.

I want to become my own person,
I want to be the one to shape, to mold.
I simply want to be in control,
I want to grab my life and take hold.

To become who I've always dreamed to be,
To become that person I know I am.
I want to take hold of my dreams,
To break down that barring dam.

But I'm left here dreaming,
Wanting more than I know,
Hoping dreams become reality,
And praying that I can do so.
