Humbled Dreams of a Distraught Dreamer!

I wish those smiles would last,
I wish those joys would stay

In the midst of a misty ocean,
Lies the frail spirit of dismay

Memoirs of a thankless life,
Sets this wandering soul ablaze

Waiting for the sun to rise,
Hope lures the sense of redemption

Life seems to unfurl in this really funny manner,
Like a new chapter was written every page

To mock at our sense of judgment at each step,
And lead us to a whole new way 

Striving for that one little thing from life, we all live,
something that someone else would easily acquire

And life smirks at us and takes that away,
Leaving us in this pain inducing solitude

Wisdom is all that pain gives but leaves a scar behind,
One that reminds us of how we were irreversibly ruffled

It's a blessing in disguise that these scars are invisible,
Because if they were visible, we'd all be so ugly!
