Have I dreamed my life away?
Wanting to prove myself
To peers, family
Have I been egotistical, arrogant?
Narcissistic, wanting the best
Being the best
Is that my failing, forgetting who I am
Wrapped up in that world
Not mine, is that
But dreams are not free of charge
Dreams are not cheap
Maybe I have dreamed my life away
Aren’t dreams to live for?
To strive for
Maybe I should sit back, get passed by
Watching life say goodbye
For the end is
Then tell me, what’s the point; to dream
Where did I go so wrong?
Time has gone
