Kill That Dream

By Caleb James K.


If only my pen could pay these bills
and I no longer have to live like this

the thought of working another day gives me chills
and writing all day is what I miss

before life got so complicated
and responsiblity took hold

I can say I waited
that I was so bold

for success to come
from the tip of my pen

and where I’m from
that’s sometihng not accomplished by men

work all day
to make money for other people

that’s the way
it’s done when you’re one of the sheeple

put your dreams on hold
and do what’s expected

fit the mold
and you won’t get rejected

writing is a dream
for others to scoff at

and it would seem
life has killed the dream

just

like

that
