is it not our minds,
which
carry out our dreams.

yet, its the streets that
foster our dreams.
yearning
more in life, but
nothing
in the
public domain.

lost and confused;
the streets
running my dreams.
i’m just
another product
of being
left behind.

but beyond the
blurred lines
lies paper dreams.
numbers to pave
the way
to progressive dreams.

waiting for life to catch my
dreams. there seems
to be only
hope in a cage of dreams.

damn.
life was just a dream.

back to the public domain,
i flee
with paper-less
dreams.
