Going thru the muck of life... pushing through the tight spots.

                                          Holding back is so hard

 

Filled with so much emotion

Pressurized until near explosion

Who am I to wish such things?

Dream such dreams?

 

Time so short for such elation

This fantasy, my mind's vacation

Wishing to be the life I desire

Escape the muck & mire

Of reality's daily dredge

This can't be real

Is fate's deceiver

Knocking at my covettess door?

You're a fool to believe in such follies they say

Toss away the safe old ways

For what, a fantasy, a dream

The illusive unpromise of hopes future

Well I say HELL YEAH!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Shall hope weep for my sake?

Who would not take?

Shall faith's friend be abandoned in a harbor of mediocrity & security?

What if? I say as I trudge through the numbness of my daze

Cannot leave this one unanswered

Even if I walk away shattered and bent; spent of all life

At least I tried. Can they say the same?
