All men are dreamers-
I think that is true.
And all men are liars-
I believe that one, too.
Iíve only one question..
To ask you my, friend,
Where does the dream stop,
And the lying begin?
They say that itís normal
To dream when youíre young
Itís then that the love songs
Are written and sung.
And conquests are made
By the strong and the bold
The lying gets worse
As a person grows old.
Foreverís sternal,,,
When a person is young
The years fly so quickly
Surprise strikes him dumb.
They lie to themselves
In their plans and their schemes
But question their lies
And they say they are dreams.
But dreams are imparted
From the One up above..
To smooth out the potholes
On the pathway of love.
To carry young lovers-
Through perilous storms.
They end in reality...
This is the norm.
But lies are product
Which cause one to grieve
Their only true purpose
To hurt and deceive.
Destoying lives
When theyíve have their full end-
Where does the dream stop,
And the lying begin?

A question we all need to ask ourselves. Wise words, here, Gunslinger! And, of course, very well written!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~
