Poetry Friday: Balcony Dreams by Mauwe

Can you tell me where
All the other dreamers go
Do they end up on the road, hitching rides
From the ones who say our head's up in the clouds
And we should come back down
But they can't hear the sounds of something bigger

Reaching in and I am reaching out
It's getting harder down here on the ground
But we all have to start somewhere

Yes, I know my chances
Yes, I heard you say
Might not go as planned but
I'll still go my way
Yes, I know my chances
Yes, I'm well aware
This might not go well but
I know I'm not scared

- lyrics from the song Balcony Dreams by Mauwe
