Where Dreams Go To Die

Ah…that would be us, the human being
This is where dreams go to die
That never ending pursuit of happiness
Dangled emotional puppet strings in obverse of us

We all desire to be loved, to create, desire, inspire, and accomplish
It springs forth like an oasis
But inevitably a mirage
From our first cries from the womb to our last throes of breath

While attainable degrees exist
Our upbringing, decisions, acts of will upon us
Always puts the human being on a collision course with reality
I dare say, we all expected life to be different than it has turned out
