Faux spark circumstance

Faux spark circumstance

A Poem by Gideon X. A. Elson

From my deepest regrets and to my most bizarre desires,
The fewest words light the most intense fires,
And I must apologize if it all seems abnormal,
But mustn't we admit the circumstance informal?
To have not a thing be mundane o how I'd like things to be,
And to have not one wish fulfilled my hearts reality,
So when we leave for new pastures to find grasses said greener,
Let us journey with a hopeful and gallant demeanor,
But alas upon arrival we find aspirations elusive yet again
Let us not be downtrodden about what could have been.
