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 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.”
