& nbsp; Acting on a Dream
With a mirror his audience, a bedroom his stage,
Vivid dreams played out, in his mind like a reel.
From childhood, adolescence and into adulthood,
Memories of those moments, still give him chills.
But decades of whispers, from talents untapped,
Blow drums and drain lives, like weak batteries.
Fear of the unknown, making crucial mistakes,
And procrastination only prolongs ones destiny.
Over time, the fear of not pursuing his dream,
Surpassed the pain of not giving success a try.
Failures became opportunities, to learn, grow,
Improve, and a decision to do more than get by.
He learned how to speak, and motivate himself,
Making adjustments, along the way, as needed.
Now stages and big screens, replace his bedroom.
A new beginning, fulfilled by a true decision.
