Someone Else’s Dream…

SOMEONE ELSE’S DREAM…

~

For most of my life,

I’ve found myself,

living someone else’s dream.

~

Aspiring towards,

material things.

Chasing glitter and gold.

~

I never took the time to see,

that this would do me harm.

~

Following the path,

others trod.

Not the one meant for me.

~

I’d rather have peace,

and a walk in the sun.

Than rewards I really don’t need.

~

The riches that matter,

kindness and love,

ignored for way too long.

~

It’s time I awoke,

before it’s too late,

~

It’s time to stop living,

someone else’s dream.
