    When our means
    are too limited
    To fulfill our dreams
    Frustration comes in
    and often limits all
    We stumble
    and we fall
    And we strike out
    With little meaning
    Or we spend our time
    just gleaning
    After the harvesters have passed
    We're always the last
    We, unprepared
    Thus we have fared
    Yet we have our dreams
    But now they kill us it seems
    And our once beautiful dreams of life
    Now bring only misery and strife

    Hi Rasheed...
    Let our means...not be limited, nor our hope shattered.
    For we are WARRIORS...and that's all that matters.
    I'm aware of your message...I feel it and I like it.

    Yes, for what you could have had, or should have had, this can weigh heavily. I liked the way you flowed with this.
