A Better Life


Today I was walking along a wooded path and
What a beautiful mahogany fence, I saw!
Sunlight cast its shadows of the evergreens
Upon its posts-
I could see prestigious homes beyond its confinement-
A fence like that would enhance the beauty of
The acre of land about my home-
I stood in awe.
Alas, the gate to this fence was locked,
And too high for me to ever climb over-
Again something I would desire but could never
Have had for myself- so many miles away-
All I could do was to walk away,
To escape from all that is real, as I have no key to a better life-
So I shall close my eyes and run away inside the world of my dreams.
