The Dance Of Hope.

Where should I take these words?
Down what path should I walk them?
…… informants of my spirits inequities
they betray the truth of my souls lostness.

Desperate needs require extreme contradictions of life
as sacrifices in exchange for false hopes.

Life therefore becomes a harboring of illicit bedfellows
who demand favors returned with the lowest
offerings that you have to offer.

Menial slavery rewarded with trivialities that defile your best efforts
and mock your most treasured achievements.

A vicious cycle of worthless rewards ensues
and chases down the meaning behind your dreams.

………and if this hideous cycle catches up with your
innermost desires, you are bound to spend the accursed
day’s allotted to you making excuses to the ones you despise
the most…..

………..thus you become nothing more than a pathetic
tap dancer, a filler in for your own main act,
perpetually given over to eating rotten tomatoes and cabbage
while you desperately hope for a break into the big time that
only you can produce.

If all the worlds a stage then the stage can go to hell!

The crowd is hungry for blood and if it doesn’t get it,
it will destroy your soul for a few moments entertainment,
only to distract themselves momentarily from the glaring obviousness of
their own failures.

While you struggle to keep your dreams alive
until you see a way to make them real…..
beware the world,
it will use any means that it has at it’s disposal
to destroy your hopes and your dreams
Your assimilation unto it’s own realm
of dreams denied
is it’s own
dreadful purpose.

Do not let yourself be inculcated
into such a death as this,

rather, fight the living death that it beckons with,
and then stand aloft of it’s mockery of your defiance
once you have won.

The Dance Of Hope.

Artist's Description

This is nothing more than a rather bitter exhortation to all who read it to never ridicule anyone who is making an attempt at doing something with their lives that matters to them, no matter how obscure the meaning seams to be to the observer.
