What Is The Cost Of A Dream?

A series of thoughts after just having watched The Founder. Screen Shot 2017-08-04 at 12.43.05 PM

Who birthed it? Who saw it through? Who gave it life? Who remembers it too?
Be it Facebook or be it Mc Donald’s – it started with an idea,
someone else’s even.
What do we remember of it today?
Just Facebook and Mc Donald’s.

But those who planted the seed, didn’t they invest in it?
Their sweat their blood, their hope and truth,
Did they not see their dream, torn away from their soul too?

It all comes down to ambition, and persistence to follow through,
To dream the dream and dream even bigger,
And after that, dream some more too.
But don’t just dream, believe in it too,
Because with dreams come risk, without action you lose.
And the ones who take the leap and persist,
That dream becomes of part of those, the ones who do,

Take a risk, take a step,
Take a leap onto the next,
And then the next and so on so forth,
Leaving the ones who could not raise it, with no hope.

You have to choose what cost you want to pay,
What dream is worth it, which ones are here to stay?
And in that moment what do you choose?
Greed and ambition are not the same face of truth.

What does your dream cost,
Do you even know, or ever find out?
Sometimes you win, win a big fortune,
But if you lose it all, oh well, then you lose.

But one thing, my friend, is crystal clear,
Some dreams bear hope, while the others spread fear.
There is always a deeper meaning to all dreams that come true,
You can choose to bring a fortune, or build a fortune of value.


  1. Beautiful words! ❤ Dreams are so important; I used to dream so much but didn't do anything to fulfil them. I guess I thought I was dreaming too big. I've become more active lately, luckily, and it's scary but pretty amazing, too. I'm glad to have found another active dreamer in you 🙂 x

    1. Thank you for the encouragement! It feels wonderful to have someone sharing your similar journey. I’m the same when it comes to Believing in My dreams – and I’m glad that we are both taking steps to actualizing them finally. It’s small words of encouragement like these that go a long way to reinforcing thoughts – so thank you! ❤

      1. No, thank YOU! ❤ I totally agree, I wouldn't have made it this far without all you lovely people commenting on my blog, encouraging me when things got tough.
        On another note – is there a post where you write about your dreams or what you're working on?
        aaand I know it's random but you might like this IG account: https://www.instagram.com/visualmemories_/ 🙂
        have a lovely weekend!! xx

      2. I love that IG handle! I’ll return the favor, check out vivnunez – she writes with vulnerability about vulnerability through her own experiences – inspired me to be more vulnerable in my own writing.
        About my own dreams – I usually weave nuggets about either my dreams of pursuing them in most of my posts – what drives you, we the people, much more, are you worried about your teeth falling out. But I think I’ve been a little more explicit in who do you want to be. https://nishitat.com/2017/04/02/who-do-you-want-to-be/
        I think my writing almost helps me figure out my dreams and that reflects in my writing as time goes on so stay tuned 🙂
        I’d love to read more about your dreams.
        Enjoy your weekend and looking forward to more posts 🙂
