Being Brave

In the tides of life,
It was easier to conform.
But the more I did,
I started losing my soul,

When your calling is genuine,
And your purpose adds joy to the cosmos,
Why should you settle for the plain,
When you can reach for the summit?

Even when the one you seek is lost,
There is valour in trying, and it is endearing.
A closure that you gave your heart,
Instead of admitting failure by default.

You're the child of a star, born to shine,
Go higher and higher till your heart's content,
When the whole wide world is your Oyster,
Why should you settle for the dust?
