I thought it was for free

I thought it was for free

Oh how I thought, how could I think
so wrong?

I reached out my hand to take it;
but the pain, racked me to my core

I dreamt of many things; beautiful things
Lying in the road; 
Lying by the wayside

I thought I saw people milling, taking, talking
but there was only me

Grabbing, grabbing at such beautiful things

I thought they were all for free;
I cried out in anguish: Why? Why?

And waking in a panic, in a sweat
In my dark, dank room

I cried in anguish, 
In a sorrow of such an inconsolable fathom

As I reached to turn on the light

In the middle of the day.
