Or else

Hm, I was just looking at my journal here... One of the titles that is... "Just like everyone else"
I kind of rephrased it a bit... "Just like everyone else OR ELSE" Don't you think that these days people hardly ever get a chance to become what they want to be...
I mean there's not a lot of space, room for someone to have a go at achieving a dream. People (whoever that may be) insist on putting the emphasis on their wealth in the future.

This is something I think about quite frequently ... Just to keep in touch with myself and what i really want. I mean if I would settle for mediocrity and never strife for what I dream of, if I don't even try to have a go at what i used to want to .... would i feel my life is worth living then.

I agree that people should check whether or not something is really worth it but ONLY IF there's a extraordinary sacrifice or risk involved...

However hard I try, I just don't really understand how people can just reside with living an "average" life,
It just doesn't appeal to me to be shuffling my feet in my old ragged slippers in front of a stove gazing at the fire during wintertime ... thinking about how fast time made me old and grey ... thinking about what could have been should have been might have been .... IF ONLY i had taken my chance that one time, way back when ...

Am i a dreamer??? - Probably.
Am I wrong for going after my dreams??? - Don't think so.
Am I different from everyone else??? - Dont think so. Everyone has dreams, don't they?
The only thing that i think might be a difference is maybe that people often feel they're not allowed to go after their dreams... and they feel as if they're too much of a dreamer... unfortunately people are not easily set free to go after their dreams...

My dream is helping people see that they matter as a person, that no one really is alone in how they feel, there are plenty of people who have feelings similar to yours and I hope to bring you together through my lyrics and singing.

You could say I have a "mission" ... My mission is to help you find eachother. I hope I can make a difference in the world, I hope I can reduce the amount of lonely people in the world, I hope to be of some worth to some people somewhere.

I hope to be different.
