Within Reach

Days of future remembrance

Dreams beyond my stretch

Of a life no one really inhabits

Something else to kvetch

Time is just a hypnotist’s bobble

Cannot parse the fake from real

So many characters, all this fantasy

Stay around for the reveal

Beautiful is my favorite color

No majesty in fawning majestic

The key light tells no lies

Truthfully just agrestic

Made-up words await their meaning

But a finger stick unveils a truth

While pretense has a bigger fan club

Now everyone must act a sleuth

Power makes fools of pretenders

Wishing for the Moon is misguided

Too big for one’s breast pocket

Making one very lopsided

Nobility is only part of a reign

Aspire past the skyline

Desire sharing your soul

Strive to be, genuine
