Follow Your Dreams - Poem by Blessing Anastasia Abaka

'Follow your dreams because it will lead you to greatness'
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams
Live the life you have imagined
Reach high,
for star lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep!
for every man proceeds the goal.
Every great dreams begins with a dreamer.

Always remember!
you have within you the strength,
the patience and the passion,
to reach for the stars to change the world.

All men dreams, but not equal
the question for each man to settle
is not what he would do if he had
means, time, influence and educational advantage
but what he will do with the things he has.
so often times it happens
that will leave our lives in chain
and we never even know we have the key

Hope is the dream of a walking man
the best way to make your dreams come true
is to wake up.
you most hammer and forge yourself into one.

commitment leads you to action
Action brings you dreams closer
Hold fast to your dreams,
for if dreams die,
life is a broken wingled birds that cannot fly

Life is like a game of chess
the hand that dealt represent determinism
the way you play
it's free will
I cannot give you the formula for success
But i can give you the formula for failure
which is
'Try to please everyone'

    I love the last stanza

    Life is like a game of chess
    the hand that dealt represent determinism
    the way you play
    it's free will
    I cannot give you the formula for success
    But i can give you the formula for failure
    which is
    'Try to please everyone'
