A seed of hope was planted

In a life full of despair

The dream of a golden future

In a world that had no care


Arcadia of pleasure

Euphoric days await

A heart that beats with joy again

My dreams they can relate


Almost an addiction

Obsessional desire

Sacrificing all I can

To light that perfect fire


Ignoring those around me

Focusing what’s here

Immersion in the better life

Removing yesteryear


Yet paradise is lonely

Confined to lonely realm

Ignorance can blind the sight

The dark can overwhelm

T
wo sides to every story

The darker side of light

A sun that sets forever

Entwined with darkest night


Reality surrounds me

Choices to be made

Give up everything in hope

Don’t let the fortune fade


Decision time is looming

Life’s path has split in two

Countdown to the answer

Of which I must pursue
