NO TO NAY-SAYERS !
They told me I couldn't. They told me I shouldn't.
They told me I wouldn't succeed.
But I have a dream; ignore it, I couldn't,
so I've set out to follow its lead.
They passed on the bad news, and plenty of sad news,
but I believe Glad News I've heard ;
if we will try, and push on past the blues,
one day we'll hear the Good Word !
They told Columbus that he was a fool.
They laughed at Noah, and Edison too.
The Vision and Dream they would never allow,
is all part of History now !
In the nay-sayers' eyes, I see past the disguise,
to a soul where a Dream lies sleeping.
What is the Dream ? When will it arise ?
What date with Destiny should it be keeping ?
What is your part ? Look in your heart;
there lies the Seed of Spirit.
Silently listen. It's faint at the start,
but if you take time you will hear it !
Remember Columbus; they called him a fool !
Remember Noah, and Edison too !
They heard their Dream,helped it grow strong,
and proved all the nay-sayers wrong !
