Bold



You keep on toiling, go on aiming
You keep your feet moving, forget about living
You realize you’re just where you should be
Because the world you’re standing is itself constantly moving

Even if you stop, the world continues
So why tire yourself to keep up on the same track that everybody is taking
Go break free, get yourself a breakthrough
Trust yourself, like how I trust you

Be bold
Put on that red polka dot dress,
Be your own stylist
Swim against the current,
Enjoy the splash of the raging water on your face
Ride on top of the bus,
See the breathtaking view of the cliff sitting beside the ocean
 
Be brave
Drive the truck,
Be in charge of the wheel
Dive in the ocean,
Be the smallest fish in the vast water
Touch the clouds,
Don’t just dream flying

Let go of the traveled path
Make your own trail
Leave a mark

The world is constantly moving
Sunrise will shower its blessings even if you’re asleep
The sun will set even if you’re not ready
You will never ever stop midnight to crack even if you try
You will just never ever

So be brave.
Be bold.
Be you,
Just the way He sees you
Beautiful, strong, and free

Don’t just be a passenger,
Don’t just be the biggest fish in the aquarium
Go breakfree, get yourself a breakthrough

Live!
Move at your own pace
Don’t be a pushover
Don’t let others’ expectations choke you

Let go of the travelled path
Make your own trail
Leave a mark

See the colors of the world
Savor the tastes of life
Know the faces of love
Leave the safe zone
Meet all the emotions out there

So be brave.
Be bold.
Be you,
Just the way He sees you
Beautiful, strong, and free

But in every breath you take
Breathe love in and out

Live and love
Just live and love
Surely your life will be full
Surely your love will give life to all




I wish I were a musician so I could arrange this poem into a song.J
