Believing I Can Dream Again

Watching waiting for me to fail
No one believed in me any more
My past with its parade of failures
Saw me stepping back instead of forward
Running in last place breathing defeat

I walked out on more than one dream
Judging each attempt by the aborted
Beginnings of the one that preceded it
When things became too difficult I ran

Thinking of myself as a failure was more pain
Than hearing the voices of those who called me one
The light of life extinguished by fear to try again

Breaking through the self doubt that assailed me
Came the quiet words of someone speaking
Why return to your yesterday of such distress
Take your today and fill it with I can
That simple pronouncement setting me free
Has me believing I can dream again
