The possibilities are endless
So what holds us back?
With a new year ahead
Can we ever get back on track?
And as I ponder these things
I’m certainly left to wonder
For all I’ve really seen
Is a life filled with blunders
Can we ever really become
Who we think we would like to be?
And I find myself so often questioning
If this is even a possibility
With all of the mistakes we’ve made
Day after day and year after year
The heartache we continuously go through
And all the many trials and the tears
It’s a wonder sometimes
How we make it through a single solitary day
And I contemplate if it’s truly possible
To ever find our rightful and predestined way
Oh don’t get me wrong
I know some people discover their place
They work hard and often compete
And then they finally win that long awaited race
But not everyone can be
That manly conquering hero
And by this world’s standards
Many of us are just a big fat zero
So considering the fact
That not everyone can be a title-holder
What does that mean for the rest of us?
Must we endeavor to be somewhat bolder?
Will our extra efforts finally gain us
A few accomplishments or a smidgen of success?
Or will we just permanently remain
Living life forever failing to impress?
And why does it matter anyway?
Do we really need to keep up with everyone else?
Isn’t it much more important
To just be happy and be ourselves?
And yet that brings me back to the beginning
Can we really be what we want to be?
Or are we already there
Only just distracted by all that we see?
