Music Mondays: To Dream the Impossible Dream – Matt Monro

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

Wow! Now that’s motivational! The word ‘impossible’ reminds me of that quote from Alice in Wonderland:

“There is no use trying,” said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.”

“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Believe, dream…don’t stop! Fight that darkness within you, no matter how down and out you may be feeling. From a lousy day at work, to everything going wrong around the house, chin up! Deep breaths! There you go! (Ok, ok, easier said than done) but hey, what’ve you got to lose? It can only get better from here on out.

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

There is always hope, no matter how distant it might seen. Be it the adverse situation prevailing around the world, or simply your own home, no matter how hopeless you may perceive it to be….it’s not. Let’s make our very own quest, let’s counter the negativity, within and around us.

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

Go with the crowd? Or stand up for what you believe in? Even at the risk of being ridiculed? And this is especially true when it comes to peer pressure, you know you don’t agree with the rest, you know you shouldn’t join in, nor should you let the injustice continue, speak up you must, for you are on the side of right, yet you falter…It takes a lot of courage to deliberately walk into a situation, knowing you’ll be outnumbered, but let that sense of truth carry you forward.

And I know if I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

It’s all about feeling peaceful inside. Do what’s right and it will pay off. You may think you’re outgunned, but deep down the majority will know and realize (maybe not immediately) that this person stood up for the truth. And this is how you start a chain reaction for the better, not only will you be better off, but the effects of your rightful actions will inevitably help change for better, the society, people or even the world! So go on, dream the impossible dream!
