Wishes and dreams
Count for nothing
It is the work
That generates esteem
Yet we feverishly
Try word for word
Reaching toward
Endless goals

Prayers and Ideas
Count for nothing
Expecting a magic spell
It is like expecting life
At the gates of Hell
Yet we eagerly
Seek gifts
Striving for more

Concepts and Nightmares
They will consume us
As we slowly thrust
Through adversity
Yet you don’t feel me
So we constantly debate
New ways
Expecting a different fate

Desire and Peace
Ideology never achieved
The complexity
We call humanity
Preventing reality
From ever being seen
Yet we dig deeper
Hoping to get richer
