Dreams Come True, by Meri Ghazaryan
On the other side of her window
Shining sun, people walking slow,
Looking at them brought happiness
Feeling of joy and pure innocence.
Glass shining, she closed her eyes
Twilight and darkness on another side arise,
Escaping from reality in which she lived
Was the only thing that made her relived.
The girl always liked to dream,
In that way everything splendid would seem,
She dreamed about being an actress
Shining like a star, feeling the happiness.
Loud screaming and darkness again
Her dad was crying because of the pain
She would run and give medicine to him,
Ease his disease, to make it less grim.
He couldn’t talk, even couldn’t move,
But his little girl always tried to prove
That soon her father would become healthy,
And they would live peaceful and happy.
She forgot her aims, never believed in herself
No education, just losing oneself.
But one day when sitting next to her father
She realized he wanted her to come closer,
Opening his mouth like her mind he read
“Believe in your dreams” was the thing he said.
She looked into his eyes brimming with tears
Felt her heart would burst, forgot all fears,
His words were vital inspiration,
Never give up and find determination!
Now she felt like she wants to live
Make her dreams come true and even believe,
She would move forward and shine like a star
Make him proud of her life and go far.
Many years later she reached her goal
Standing on the stage like a beautiful doll,
Looking to his eyes brought happiness
He was proud of her little actress.
Now her father doesn’t say a thing
Not because he couldn’t talk or think,
But great pleasure has made him speechless
He gave her a reason to achieve success.
Life’s plan, Your Plan
To live life to the fullest is something we all desire. We form our own utopia in order to succeed before we expire. What is it that we all search for? Fame? Wealth? Happiness? Yet we are closed minded and fall into emptiness. We create possibilities how we can only contain ONE career, ONE purpose, ONE meaning, its the biggest fear. Growing up I had the privilege to view experiences of others. I gained knowledge towards watching the life of my sisters and brothers. I grew up thinking life had its instructions. its clear format of success. I'm obligated to go to school, then college, then my Masters to impress. Never the less, the dreams where very vague. Growing up people would always say the phrase, “ follow your dreams, dream big kid” But what were they? With the economy at its lowest and my parents getting by, I thought my life was decided, I thought it was clear that I had tried. You see I pondered about what I wanted to be. I wanted to help people, but don't we all do? We all want to find some emotional hashtag to tag to. We've lost purpose and meaning towards what was right and what life was about. We let fear control us and worse, even doubt. We are humans, same as the greatest minds of all. Do not let the fear of flying disrupt you, we are all meant to fall. You see life has several roads to take, it is a cluster of moments, choices and mistakes. Take the time to discover who you are, not to numb your scar. Most importantly love your discovery. Life only begins when you choose to start. Be happy and grateful, you’ve made it this far.
