No matter the risk, I will Dare to live for my dreams;

No matter the falls, I will Dare to learn to stand taller;

No matter the stigma, I will Dare to feel;

No matter the consequence, I will Dare to only speak the truth;

No matter how disparate I can feel, I will Dare to be myself;

No matter the difficulties, I will Dare to keep my commitments;

No matter the past, I will Dare to stay in the present;

No matter the hurt, I will Dare to love.


Yet sometimes it can all be very overwhelming and frightening; for:

the risks are high, but I shall Believe in my dreams;

the fall is steep, but I shall Believe in growing;

the stigma sticks, but I shall Believe in expressing myself;

the consequences are unsettling, but I shall Believe the truth always prevails;

the disparate exaggerates loneliness, but I shall Believe to be uniquely myself;

the difficulties prove challenging, but I shall Believe in the trust of commitments;

the past lingers, but I shall Believe to feel the presence of a moment;

the hurt is ever so real, but I shall Believe in love.


No matter what difficulties I face, roadblocks I encounter and disappointments I come across, I will continue daring to live and believing in the world, in people, in friends, in my family, my dreams and most importantly believing in myself. A friend of mine has a bracelet with this word. I like this word: Believe.
