Wasted Dreams

Delay success for as long
As you canů
Living up to an image
Will only cloud your judgment
Stealing what you can least
Afford to lose
Dragging you into the illusion
And myth
That could take a lifetime
To rail against
Dragging you into the
Vicarious trap
Of praise falsely given
 -and wasted dreams

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2016)
