A series of thoughts after just having watched The Founder.
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.
