    sands of shattered dreams
    blacktop oceans
    infinitely tanned masses
    under a sun of despair
    this the beach
    the only one I know
    dodging broken glass
    of society's mental faux pas
    of my actuality
    I set to reach the horizon
    to peek over and become immersed
    in the essence of the other side
    where fruits are plentiful
    and optimism is free
    that's where I presume I want to
    be
    ya see
    all fruit that seems ripe ain't fresh
    and everything that seems free
    has a cost, but,
    the sands of my beach run
    through /time and space/ of my
    sanity
    each grain erodes what hope remains
    therefore I press
    on to see the other side
