"And the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." Revelation 7:17

Dreams destroyed my destiny.
I’ve had enough of fantasy.
It twisted my reality.
And through all of its trickery,
Ended my life in tragedy.
It caused the catastrophe.
It lost my identity.
My heart was the fatality.
It made the world my enemy.
People don’t feel sympathy.
They laugh at my misery.
So I made the discovery
That I was an accessory
And must remove dependency.
