WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Age

The things that keep me up at night .. and tosses

My soul around as I see society focused on losses

Instead of seeing things in terms of dreams unfulfilled

To be pushed hard for, chased, pursued and willed

No, life isn’t some glamorous scene out of Hollywood

Then again, have you seen Hollywood and understood

Real life is more than some pretense and painted illusion

If you think that, let me help you out of your sad confusion

Look around you and tell me, sisters and brothers, what do you see?

Quit with all that gloom and let’s reach out for its potentiality

Oh you tell me don’t you that that was a different day and age?

And me, I won’t even begin to pretend that I am some sort of sage

But, I do know that as our country and us come at this present age

It is we dreamers who believe in hope and the future who set the stage…

Hollywood - Drowned In Hollywood
