Sorry this is going up a bit late, been a bit busy today. And besides that, I’ve been a bit lazy, and have been enjoying my laziness. I have the house to myself again for a couple of days, and have been thoroughly enjoying it! But I didn’t want to make a habit of missing out on Poetry Thursday’s, so here is something I wrote earlier this week. Enjoy!
You Can’t Depend on Just Dreams, Hopes, and Prayers
Watch the world pass by with starry eyes,
hopeless dreams and sparkling skies.
Lost in this abyss of hopefulness,
built in dreams and make-believe –
wishes made on shooting stars.
Waiting endlessly for that prince
on an ivory stallion, baring
easy-answers and problem’s solved –
making promises of praise and glory,
effortless achievements, hand-outs
of lessons half-learnt and squandered.
Dream of all the gifts in the world,
want all life has to offer – beg,
and cry, and covet. Pray,
pray your futile prayers –
ask your starry skies for everything.
Wait, and wait – and do nothing.
