I Had A Dream

Oh, it's just nothing really,
Well...I once dared to dream,
It was a crazy, fanciful whim,
And I earned misery for my folly.

When you reach for the star,
The fall usually is steep,
You get hurt, you weep,
And you wage a losing war.

Oh, it only hurts when I sit,
But then I sit quite so often,
So I carry a cushion to soften
my bruised bottom a wee bit.

Not mine, it's someone else's tale,
Oh, Ok! It is my silly story,
But I am fine, not to worry,
All is well if the 'end' is well!

For Russell Sivey's contest: Dreams
