“That thing you thought you'd do
You start to think you can't;
You always say tomorrow,
But you haven't got a plan.
Everyone's asking questions,
And all you do is dodge.
That career that you'd imagined
Was only a mirage.
The older that you get,
The smaller that you feel;
You forget what's only in your head,
And what is really real.
Sometimes people make it;
They become who they meant to be.
But most of the time,
Dreamers only dream.”
Margo T. Rose, The Words

Walt Whitman
“Quicksand years that whirl me I know not whither,
Your schemes, politics, fail, lines give way, substances mock and elude me,
Only the theme I sing, the great and strong-possess'd soul, eludes not,

Out of politics, triumphs, battles, life, what at last finally remains?
When shows break up what but One's-Self is sure?”
Walt Whitman, LEAVES OF GRASS
