(If you can)
While I consider the dreams I once had.
Full of vigor.
Full of Hope.
Full of Strength.
Full of ambition.
And a lust for power.
Laugh with me
While I realize that the dreams are gone.
Thwarted by a flawed personality
Too scared to take a meaningful chance.
To unwilling to chance being wrong.
Too illogical to seek
Mountains and plateaus instead of rocky towering peaks.
Equality instead of control.
Truth instead of power.
Money instead of happiness
Love instead of pleasure.
Moan with this damaged man
(If you are still here)
While I embrace the emptiness of lost years.
And incomplete men,
Who surrendered to a fatal dream,
To a meaningless quest for money, sex, power and control.
To a debilitating fatal lie.
To a fatal fucking lie.
