For a moment of peace and solitude

A clear blue sky not

Set on fire by the setting sun

A life of smooth sailing not

Bestows experience to face the unknown

Nature is neither crooked not malevolent

Expectations, untempered by reason, result in heartburns

We blame fate for what others point as failures

If they would have only known

I have walked past my success and left it behind

For a moment of peace and solitude

I do not dream anymore

I do not dream anymore
Dreams,not achieved
Do not bother
And ruin my days
Know what will be said
Labels will be assigned
Disappointment, failure
Underachiever, indifferent

I do not dream anymore
Just so that you know
Have left those days behind
When I used to see
The reflection in the mirror
And not recognize the face
Looking back at me
A face defined by others

I do not dream anymore
Made peace with myself
No need to look at the mirror
Because I know in my heart
I will like what I will see

I do not dream anymore
Dreams that probably
Were not mine
To begin with
But hope, I still hope
And I know that
I will be able to live
Without my dreams
And make a life of it

I do not dream anymore
Now that learnt to love myself
I  learnt to love
And share my love
Without fear of
Acceptance or rejection
I do not dream anymore
