Chasing Rainbows (or...following your dreams to the disdain of those who would rather crush them)

“You’re chasing rainbows”
Is what they would say
When they’d go forward
And I’d go my way.

“You’re chasing unicorns”
They’d tease me in jest.
And snicker behind me
As if they knew best.

“Your head’s in the clouds”
I’ve heard it before
Whenever I’ve opened
An imaginary door.

“Just stop dreaming,
And decide what to be.
You’ll never make it,
Can’t you just see?”

“Be serious, calm down,”
They tried discourage
But I never listened,
And that’s why I flourish!
