Hazy Day Dream (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #28)   Leave a comment

I'm dreaming the day away 
'Cause I've got nothing important to say to you
So we'll follow routine like we always do
I'll just follow you

Time ticks on to more of the same
There is nobody to blame but me
So I'll sit in my head like I always do
I'll just follow you

This world doesn't mean that much to me
I'd rather stay inside my hazy day dream

The day was bright and full of sun
I wish I could go out and have a little fun
That's not something that you want to do
I'll just follow you

There isn't much to do inside
But the confines of my mind are great for hiding me
So I'll hang out here like I always do
I'll just follow you

The world doesn't mean that much to me
I'd rather stay inside my hazy day dream

I need my biggest dreams
To be my fondest memories.
I want my life to put my death to shame.
I don’t want my last refrain
To be one of regret, one of disdain.
I want my legacy to be something unfathomable,
Something no one has ever thought of,
The answer to a question we don’t know to ask yet.

I can’t convince myself to accept anything less.
Unless I meet my higher standard,
I do not deserve to stand with pride.
I cannot understand a half placed effort,
Being comforted with less than perfection
Is a perfect misdirection of your true purpose:
To leave a permanent mark on the world
And better it for your fellow man.
