A is for Abandon

A little bit of free verse. (darker than I usually write)

“Abandon your silly dreams,” he said.

“What you think you get by holdin’ on?

You think that someday fate will grant your wish.

I can tell you this- the only thing

you get is

your dreams slapped back in your face

and the world laughin’ at you.

You think the world cares?

The world owes

you nothing.

You won’t change that,

 thinking somehow you’ll

rise above all this.

Hoping for some new life will not bring anything but heartache.

Hoping that you can change your destiny

is an empty wish.

Better to accept what is, and move on.”

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
