Open Your Eyes

Open your eyes.
Let them see,
All the things that you could be.
Don’t stand by your wasted tries.

Or think you had your chance,
Now it’s gone, and you let it die,
Make your plans.
Hold on tight, and swallow that sigh.

A dream isn’t always what it seems.
Sometimes along the way you get lost.
You ask yourself why and what it means,
Or simply stop to count the cost.

Open your eyes.
Imagine what you could be,
If you silenced all the lies,
And could finally see.
