Best Laid Plans

Posted on Nov 2, 2014


Girl thinking

Picture courtesy of

The dream kept alive
to a quiet flame
That roared into
a flaming inferno

Then was put out
by a twist of fate
Maybe more like
stupid neglect

Going nowhere, still
spinning the wheel
Like a hamster

Forever running the
same treadmill
Then walking
to a slow crawl

Giving up the
ghost of the chance
To step off the
Never-ending wheel

Best laid plans may
have failed again
But by god the dream
shall never fade

The flame shall
always burn
Within the heart
and soul
