Winning

Follow your dreams

As they drift out to sea.

You can be anything

If you can afford to.

Searching for meaning

In sad lonely lives;

We will be remembered,

And remember their lies.

 

I haven’t lived long,

But lived long enough,

To see through this system

Where we worship our stuff.

There’s value in objects,

When you determine it so;

There’s value in happiness,

But you value it low.

 

Time will tell what lies were told

From systems within systems

Worth only their weight in gold.

Is this the dream we were sold?

In our billions we’ve bought in

To this promise we believe:

You can be famous and wealthy,

Free from this sin,

Of having nothing but dreams

Of a life you can win.
