A Poor Person's Dream

Waking Up to Realities in Life

Photo by Jeremy Wong on Unsplash

I made a Castle in the Air

Because I did not want to be Poor

I was surrounded by Luxury and Servants and flew around the World

I had Money and Wealth and away I did go

I had many friends, but all of that was a dream

A Poor Person's Dream

My Castle made in the Air

The wind was taking it away and without me noticing it little by little

It flew away

Finding myself Hungry and Depreciated once again

A lesson learned in Life was such a harsh dream to awaken too

My Castle was from Water now; where I now was drowning in a Sea of Tears

Talking to my pillow and hoping to disappear
