    This is just another installment
    Into the life that isn’t mine
    A brief relief from reality
    A few minutes away from time

    I am closing my eyes to see it
    Creating the image in my mind
    The air is refreshing and serene
    Cloudless skies, bright sunshine

    I’m eating from the finest china
    I am sipping on the finest wines
    Meals served from the best chef of the world
    In company of elite I dine

    Where money is never an object
    Where no ones objectives are malign
    Where the returns are at least consistent
    If not greater for each task assigned

    A place can amplify my strengths
    Where I can break free from all my binds
    I can ride all the rides; not get sick
    And I can skip through all the lines

    Where opportunities keep growing
    And I keep picking ripe from the vine
    Where I can make many proposals
    And have none of them are declined

    It’s a charmingly wonderful place
    A place that’s nothing less than sublime
    Expectations are optimistic
    And the smile on my face is benign

    Although I’m not living this life now
    I am now feeling it in my spine
    And the thing is I may achieve this
    If it’s a hill I’m willing to climb

    OOOOH! I wanna go too!
    If it's as marvelous as
    this flow you just dropped,
    Point me to that hill!
    Wow! the very thought
    gives me goose bumps!
