Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

This blood of mine, keeps flowing like a stream,
You cannot stop me, even I have a dream.
Even I am a human born with a passion,
Be it in the field of academics, sports, dance or fashion!
The house of dreams that I built,
They shattered it all! And somehow filled me with guilt.
With their merciless questions that hit me like a dart,
My own family stopped me from following my heart!
I remained silent for so long,
Was innocent, but kept enduring all along.
But no more will I bear the pain,
I will follow my dream- be it sunshine or rain!
All the problems I face in my path- I will resolve,
Now only around my dream- will my world revolve.
Now there will be no tears or fear,
With each passing day, to my target, I will get a step near!
Oh my dear ones!
I wish you would have understood me for once.
Because I am a chapter of your dreams,
I know that you love me deep inside, though, you hate me- to others it seems!
But I know that one day you will understand though,
I do not know when and how.
But for now, as you see,
You are coming in between my dreams and me!
Apart from me, now no one will decide my future,
I am now going to walk on the path of success, away from torture.
On my way, you better not even try to flop me,
Because now no one can stop me from who I want to be!

This is a wonderful poem about the realization that no one should stop you when it comes to following your dreams, not even your family. Beautiful.

Beautifully written. I believe I read on your profile that you`re 13 years old? I have to say, I wouldn`t have expected that. Reading your work, you seem very mature. I was very impressed by this poem. I find it incredibly motivational and I love the deep symbolism and imagery you portray here. Very well done. I`m going to go check out your poems `My First Day of Class Eight`(love the title, by the way) and `For My BFF` right now. I`ll let you know what I think! If they`re anything like this one, I know I`ll be impressed. Enjoy your weekend!! - Kate xo
