Have I Dreamed – The Mush from the Hill

First published on Free Verse Revolution, a division of Blank Paper Press.

 

Have I dreamed my life away?

Wanting to prove myself

To peers, family

Friends

 

Have I been egotistical, arrogant?

Narcissistic, wanting the best

Being the best

Obsessed

 

Is that my failing, forgetting who I am

Wrapped up in that world

Not mine, is that

Fine

 

But dreams are not free of charge

Dreams are not cheap

They’re hard

Cruel

 

Maybe I have dreamed my life away

Aren’t dreams to live for?

To strive for

Adore

 

Maybe I should sit back, get passed by

Watching life say goodbye

For the end is

Nigh

 

Then tell me, what’s the point; to dream

Where did I go so wrong?

Time has gone

By

 

Bye!
