A Dreamed-Of Life | A Poem by Chris Byrne

Life is an amazing experience so few understand,
and never get the chance to experience;
some never truly appreciate life,
what it is, what it offers.

Some only dream, never living,
never seeing life, only dreaming
of what a life is day in day out,
getting bored, never seeing.

The dream, the gift of life,
is a conundrum they say,
yet only in their thoughts
is it so.

For it is complicated;
it’s trivial and, if you
never go after what
you want from life,
You will never get it,
and life will be
just that, just
a life.
