Death of Dreams

by kitmyers

Why did I dare to dream,
And try to be unbound?
Where has my life gone?

Failure and self doubt cripple
I wanted to be found
Why did I dare to dream?

I have not been a wave, but a ripple
A face in the crowd,
Where has my life gone?

It won’t be long until I wrinkle
Am nothing but a mound
Why did I dare to dream?

And yet, I try and think
Until my head begins to pound
Where has my life gone?

I must see that this is just a kink
On this road, to which I am bound
Why did I dare to dream?
Where has my life gone?
