We can always wait forever
for things we want to change
as bad as Mahatma Ghandi wanted peace.
But if all we did was sit by the door,
waiting for a love to show,
there is no guarantee that our wishes will be fulfilled.
It’s hard to hear, and even harder to do,
but there are some dreams that must be chased.
If your heart truly desires something,
why not put your energy toward that something?
You can’t passively sit and wait,
though you can’t just be desperate.
When you build your door,
you must be proud of it.
Don’t settle for a door of plastic,
easily torn away by a storm.
Make it sturdy.
Don’t forget to put hope in a hanging wreath.
Don’t forget to put confidence on the welcome mat.
And above all, don’t forget to be right behind your door,
ready to welcome the opportunity you’ve worked hard for.
