A glance at my future through the mirror
So beautiful and tasty like sugar aisle on a cake
Right now? No stories of joy, only pains and sorrow
Only appearing a fictional celebrant with no cake
I’m trapped! No hallucinating, I’m mapping my aspirations
In a land of the zombies! A place of celebration for only scavengers
My dreams! They are strong; No work; in sight no fruition
Strengthened like a vulture; knotting the shoe ropes to fly like an eagle
Starts with enough exchange of wine from newbie to knowbie
A drop of fuel powerfully conveyed to upset systems
Don’t be scared; growth is adorable! Else, Einstein wouldn’t be a stem
Time’s like an arrow on a dart with romanced effort as miracle
I’m ready! The flight is mine cos I’m the plane
Tell my future; a complex is erected
The world would marvel; it all started with a visionary glare.
