Talents Not Enough

Talent and dreams are not enough to survive
It's how we handle the questions inside
There are so many possibilities
To be what you can be
If you could see your future
That's coming on full speed

It took talent to build the Sixteenth Chapel
It takes talent to make a pie from an apple
It takes talent to turn dreams into reality
But it take desire to finish the scene

Talent and dreams can only take flight
If we walk through our mind to the dreams daylight
Some always knew what they wanted to be
Following their hearts lets them see

Talent and dreams need belief and desire
One without the other won't set the fire
Patience keeps them all together
Until you become what you want to be.
