Do what's in your heart now. Put it off and you may have regrets forever.


Have you ever had the feeling, 
The real you has not surfaced?
It's just waiting for a reason,
To burst forth with a purpose

Sometimes we get delayed,
In what was meant for us
Sometimes other things come first,
So not to make a fuss

But you've always known, some day
You'd do that 'one thing',
Now the time has opened,
Oh, the pleasure it will bring.

If your loved ones really care
They will understand
You're going to climb your mountian,
Or join that special band

And if you fail, it's only
Some 'time' you've lost,
But deny yourself, you'll always
Wonder 'at what cost'.
