He Thinks of One Passive Woman's Dream
Your heart declares it believes
that fairy tales and fallen leaves
will solve your struggles.
It ignores how life often unravels
to reveal a greater power:
the idea of a damsel confined above a tower
sprung from a lazy man's ultimate conquest state
to gain love by neither struggle nor fate;
and any dragons within your mind
spring only if you don't give time,
have little patience for life
through struggles and strife
that present themselves
and force your heart to delve.
Lessons must be learned first
if we are to blossom and burst
with the inspiration required to achieve.
And though one must sometimes grieve
to accomplish what greatness here lies,
that which we reap does fall from the skies,
that last and longest mile traveled
in the end does provide and unravel,
reveals why you must will and labor instead
and keep fairy tales only outside your heart and head.
