Peer Pressure

I dream, I daren’t

I fall into despair

Succumb to the weight

Of a thousand “No’s”

I dream, I don’t

I sink into the known

Sign the agreement

Of “Not for me”

I wake, I rise

I say “No thanks”

Rise and move ahead

Towards my dream

Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: succumb
