Once scared to remain in despair

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 23:43 -- Heidii1

My highest aspirations 

The ones I hope no longer to be dreams 

Threatening with apparitions 

Visible and dark beams 

Coming to induce fear or perhaps redeem 

Sweeping away the emptiness 

On the lookout for success 

Now in pursuit of happiness 

Knowing I am blessed 

Sometimes hard to believe 

Still enduring all poverty and despair 

I am here to achieve 

Soon there will no longer be a nightmare
