we grow up thinking that we will be someone one day,
a tv star, politician, tycoon, CEO, an activist.
our names known, faces recognized, respect.
we carry the hopes and dreams on our backs in our hearts,
young and eager;
pulsating with desire,
but along the way,
dissapointments strikes,
reality hits
life happens.
we realize that there is no light at the end of the tunnel,
no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,
the grass is never greener on the other side either.
it was lies, all lies.
and we settle.
we settle for second best,
for a normal civilian life,
we settle for normalcy
and see our once upon a time and happily ever after get washed down the drain,
so we say bye-bye and pretend that we're happy.
"We don't have to be somebody to be happy",
we lie to ourselves,
but,
how true is it?

will you settle or will you strive?
how long can you hold on?

Strive la apa lagi, you gotta hold on to your fairy tales. I believe that without that existence will merely be people trudging through the mud and gunk of life's path till the end takes them. I rather be silly, childish even, and hold on to the believe in fairy tales rather than succumb to the tyranny of 'acceptance'.

Keep flying and never stop trying.
