Dare to live your passionate dreams !

This is an inspirational poem I have written of my own life's experiences.

Dare to live your passionate dreams !

Hey young boys and girls, men and women! Do you know a bit,
How the sparkling candles of happiness and joy can ever be lit ?
Happiness that is instantaneous, yet it touches your very soul,
Filling you with ecstatic feelings and thrill beyond your control,
Is it possible to remain in that truest state of ultimate bliss ?
Hey young boys and girls, men and women ! Do you know a bit?


How does it feel when for a dream of yours, a dull job you quit?
And gather courage to start afresh, running the risk of failing,
But never cease to follow your heart that is always sailing,
Against all odds, never quiting...Never...Ah ! how exciting is it,
Hey young boys and girls, men and women ! Do you know a bit?


How does it feel when you realize your hidden sins and admit,
That you were at fault and mean it, ready to bear what may come,
Your confessions may bring you sneers that you cannot fanthom,
But how calm is your soul when in it the devine light of truth is lit !
Hey young boys and girls, men and women ! Do you know a bit?


When you talk to strangers, collegues, people you have to meet,
As if they were not just people but really meant something to you,
You begin to love them instantly and feel the joy you never knew,
love is not a rare thing and you can find it at the very place you sit,
Hey young boys and girls, men and women ! Do you know a bit ?


How light it feels, when you just for the moment, quitely sit ?
When you mind is still, very still, not chasing after you desires,
For the moment, you heart is empty and there is nothing it aspires,
There is a tranquility in emptiness and nothingness and their knit,
Hey young boys and girls, men and women! Do you know a bit?

There is more to life than the cunning mind that is always is full of wit,
Have the courage to dare and live your passionate dreams and do love,
Fail a hundred times in life, love and your dealings but rise above,
The mediocrity of a dull life. World belongs to the brave that fits in it,
Hey young boys and girls, men and women ! Do you know a bit ?

I love your expressions and the way you let this out. Why not check out my story and tell me what you think. It was a 5 minutes inspiration I wrote down and I am scared it may not be as great as I thought.
