She Said, They Said

I want to make a difference, she said
I’d like to be a little famous, she said
You’ll have to wait and see, they said
Get up and follow your dreams, they said

I don’t want to be a follower
I don’t want to be a time borrower
I want to lead, serve, and act
I’ll never kick the dog or starve the cat

I want to travel the world, she said
I want to dance and twirl, she said
You’ll have to save a lot of money, they said
You’ll have to be away from family, they said

I tucked away my pride in a pocket
I’m stepping out, shedding the broken locket
I tucked away my shattered heart
I’m running my own race like a bulls-eye dart

I want to serve more people, she said
I want to climb this steeple, she said
Be strong and be confident, they said
We’ll stand by you each moment, they said

Thank you, she said
