Everyone has some wisdom, some advice to impart,
what I should, and shouldn’t do.
If I should choose to follow my heart,
where would that lead me to ?
I lose myself in dreams that can never be,
we’ve all wanted to escape reality.
We should be so lucky, from time to time,
to wander off and taste the sublime.
Cast off rules and limits,
something everyone wants to do, but never admits.
But I must awake and return to a world that’s real,
I can’t recover that enthusiasm and zeal.
Sometimes we get it right, more often than not, we get it wrong,
we do the best we can, go forward and move along.
Life is learning, a series of trials and errors,
I didn’t turn out to be the poster child of my fore-bearers.
I failed to measure up to their example,
fell short, though opportunities were ample.
I am what I am, flaws and all, I am me,
an accumulation of ages, past and present, an assembly;
of an infinite amount of particles and elements.
Though imperfect, still there is contained within; elegance.
