DRIVEN BY THE SHADOWS OF DAYDREAM

Driven by the shadows of 
daydream,
Never lust after what 
you'd never have;
Enticed by the brightness 
of its gleam,
Do not expect more than 
you deserve.
If anyone in the illusions 
of his mind
Is obsessed by the tricks 
of fantasies,
No sooner would such 
come to find
That they're fairy tales 
and ecstasies.
And so it is: there is more 
to this life
Than would meet the 
ordinary eyes;
Full of vanity, and 
sufficient with strife,
Are all of deceit and 
devastating lies.
Daydream is nothing but a 
cold comfort
That only an awakening to 
reality can abort.
