Downtrodden Feet

Built on a foundation of starry eyed moonbeams

Fine cracks turn to sink holes of disappointed dreams

How painful in life to realise your desires

May not come to pass however hard you conspire

Competing with mobs on this path many chose

Surrendering innocence as insecurity grows

This footpath is sidetracked with unscheduled detours 

Thorns shred ambition— passion loses allure 

A hopeful fast clip— click clack of heels on the street

Drowned out by— swing clomp, crutches dragging downtrodden feet
