Chasing Their Dreams

No one or anyone prevented them,
From chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
No one could.

And when anyone has material things,
That glistens their bling...
A way is found to obtain them,
Legitimately.
Or, clandestine to shine in their minds.
'Cause...
No one can intervene or prevent,
One who is chasing dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
Or stop them if they could.

No one can or prevent one who is...
Chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would,
If they...
Thought they could.

And then a time comes when achievements,
Have been done...
That one will wish for a life simplistic,
With someone.
Remembered from a past that was happy and basic,
But...
They left them fast to chase,
After their dreams.

OH...
No one or anyone prevented them,
From chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
No one could.

OH...
No one or anyone prevented them,
From chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
No one could.

And today a basicness is wished,
But...
No one or anyone prevented them,
From chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
No one could.

Today a basicness is wished,
But...
Chasing their dreams,
Left them...
Caught up in schemes.
And...
No one could prevent them,
From...
Chasing their dreams...
No!
No one would.
No!
No one could.
