Caught In The Middle

Life marked by resonating dreams
of unclinched hopes and soulless targets
Drawn into oblivion as drudgery creeps
withdrawing slowly ever of final failed picture

Child youth and homebound man
stages never had an interval
a seamless flow just to make the next
more fruitful and meaning to add

As stage slipped by and so did
the unlinched hopes and soulless targets
Parched arid minds and tiring body
Withdrawing just to become a face in the crowd
