Vanilla Dreams

I seem to lose touch

In this world of disarray

The vision of tomorrow

Has been dimmed by time.

I question destiny

What is future for me

He told me, "follow me,

I will take you with me.

Pitfalls are on the way;

Temptations tarry you.

They all lead you astray

Be careful as you go".

Destiny has left me;

Adventure takes his place.

Commonsense pricks my guilt.

I see reality.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

Reality versus falsity. We often lost touch with the real world.

Yes, this is a well composed piece..It is all about commensenseat the end. 'Destiny has left and adventure takes his place'.. Eloquent words indeed.
