Dreams - Poem by The First Shrike

where would any be
the lofty the low
without a dream
to guide them so

Practical words from
the high
speak of reality
take this position
do so abide

For you waste your life
trying to so obtain
that witch
I could not so have

Neither may you so
attain

So aIl must give up
there hopes there dreams

Or be crushed by
another reality it
seems

    where would any be
    the lofty the low
    without a dream
    to guide them so
    balls crunching words of reality..
    you give hope where hope does not exist..
