Thesong doesn't have any poetic advise but it has a strong message and doesn't need the music to make it effective. I think this song is different it can stand alone without the melody but won't be a like apoem. Starting from the beginning of the song where it says " I can almost see it /That dream I'm dreaming, but/ There's a voice inside my head saying/You'll never reach it." If we look at it in aChristian perspective, we can interpret this part like when you have a dream and you are doing everything to make it happen, you have faith that it will realize but then a person comes to you and sayyou are crazy trying to weaken your faith. To complete the message in the song the part where it says “The struggles I'm facing/ The chances I'm taking /Sometimes might knock me down, but/No I'm notbreaking /I may not know it/But these are the moments that/I'm gonna remember most” when we put the two parts together a person will realize that if we have a dream and have to go to through battles toreach it, the battles that we go through are the moments that we are going to remember and those moments are the ones that strengthens our faith.

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming, but
There's a voice inside my head saying
You'll never reach it
Every step I'm taking
Every move I make, feels
Lost, with nodirection
My faith is shaking
But I, I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle...
