Chasing a Dream by Chukairi Chasing a Dream by Chukairi
I'll carry your hopes and dreams inside of me,
and I'll always remember to look forward.
Because you have taught me so much,
I don't ever want to forget where I came from,
or who I am.

I'll be strong,
Strong enough,
to stand on my own.

So that one day,
You will be waiting in the future,
as a Dream,
a Hope,
and someday
a Reality.

So wait for me,
I'm coming.

If you guys have seen the drawing "One Day" (first drawing listed below) this is like an after drawing of that art work.
Lately, there's been a lot of inspiring things happening around me. I think I've fallen in love with art over and over again. The people who created them are like masters, and it just reminds me that I have so much to learn, so much to work for. But I'm not scared, I finally have a goal. I know where I want to be, where I want to work, what I want to do....I have a direction, and I want to chase after it. Even if the process is tedious, I don't want want to stand idly...because someone once told me "you can dream all you want, but if you never take action to make it into reality, it'll always only be a dream."

"Just keep running forward. Run until you reach your goal! I'll be waiting for you there!"

Just like an old novel I've read...

This is beautiful. Just coming from looking at "One Day", I am struck by the sense of hope, of starting again, and of heading forward, bright-eyed, into the light. It is a beautiful contrast.
Thank you so much for sharing. You are a great artist.

P.S. I can really feel the wind blowing as I look at this picture! The way her dress is moving around her legs, combined with the scattering petals, brings it all to life. I love the bare feet-- it makes it all the more real. I also love how her hair swirls around her, and how she is running-- she really looks like she is running!
This picture is motion-- moving forward; a splendid contrast the the quiet stillness and grayness of "One Day". The poem is beautiful, too!!
Thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you for your comment! It means so much to move someone with my art work. Thank you for looking at both one day and chasing a dream. Those two art works are really close to my heart. 

Recently I discovered this song after I finished this art work: m.youtube.com/watch?v=y1hWi-vg…

It sounds like your comment, so I thought I'd share it :3

You're very welcome!  It's a blessing to find artwork where I can feel the heart of the artist coming through their work, and to feel my own heart moving in reply.  It's a wonderful kind of connection.  Art is really wonderful.

Thank you for sharing the song!  It really did fit.  ^v^
