Anxiousness Left - Poem by Richard Stilwell

The ideal held high like a trophy,
Worshiped in mind out of sight,
Is a powerful dream that sustains,

But once the interpetation,
And realization of it is known, ,
Leaves one at the cross roads pondering,

Nothing was all wrong,
And nothing tested proved nothing all right,

Which way to go when the ideal,
Was perceived average__
