Let Me Try

They told me it was a waste of time. That my dreams would never come true. That I would never make it in the "real world".

I did not believe them then. And I do not, will not now. I have no illusions about what life has in store. It is a hard path I have set upon and I have chosen a parallel path too, a net should I fall.

Still they tell me I should steer away.

But, you know...

Even though my hopes are no longer high, I tell them this:

Let me try.
