Song of Fools
Song of Fools

Purely by accident,

I wrote a song

meant to inspire,

to lift my spirits.

The music made me believe

impossible

did not exist.

But I stumbled;

my dream died,

all for naught.

The song taught me a lie,

told me I could catch the wind

as it slipped through my fingers.

Now all I have is dust,

dust and ashes,

and this song of fools.
