Amit Ummat
Burlington, ON

Blurry dreams
Caught in the undertow

Uncertainty decimates the timid soul
Learn to swim, learn to grow

Reverie reveals the strength within
If I refuse to believe then there is no truth

Emerge from the void and
Clear the dreams of that boy

Yes you may hurt
Yes you may fail

But still you must try

What if you shine
What if you fly
