Castles in the Sky

(written April 2023)

Illusions of the mind

will only waste your time.

Don’t paint the perfect scene.

Perfect only exists in dreams.

Never grasp on thin air

while trying to hold

onto something that is not there.

The truth will leave you bare,

but it is better

than any lie.

There are no

castles in the sky.
