“Be Practical”, they say.

Up in the clouds I live,
Along with the birds I fly,
I wink at the twinkling stars,
As I twirl on the moon.
In my dreams I live,
Towards my goal I run
.

“Be practical”, they say.

 
You’re destined to fail,
You’re on the dooms way.
Are you foolish or are you crazy?
Why don’t you understand?
Dreams don’t fill your tummy,
You’ll end up in road hungry.
Don’t be so impractical!
World doesn’t work that way.

“Be practical”, they say.

 
But there a flame in my heart,
And a vision in my mind.
Even when I’m directionless,
I’ve my destination in my mind,
I’ve dreams to accomplish.
So, I unhear all their fake concern.

“Be practical”, they say.
