INS-PIR-ATION

When folly leads; to wisdom…
By the way of endless dreams
'Pon a backdrop psycadellic where, 
There's nothing all it seems’

I have struggled with good reason
made forays to shore-less isles
Lived a lifetime in the instant  
Rode the shine of unforced smiles

Finding ever more to disconcert me
Through crowds of motley folk
Senses were overshadowed 
Seams burst at senseless jokes
So on without an Inkling,
To a place I can't discern
Where tomorrow or forever
All I know is..' more I'll learn..
