Rainbow-colored Dreams

Rainbow-colored Dreams

I chase my rainbow-colored dreams.

They are so grandiose it seems -

until the brilliance goes awry

and colors of the rainbow die.

 

When I was younger I was told

that I'd be better off when old -

if I would always persevere -

not give up and never fear.

 

So worked, I did, both day and night.

I gave it all - my fiercest fight.

For over forty years 'til now

the sweat poured off my heavy brow.

 

The fam'ly loss was inhumane.

The millions lost was bankers' gain.

"Success" was sketched out vividly -

but yet this nightmare came to me.

 

First Timothy, six and ten,

is proven true again, again.

If love of money's in the heart,

then love for God is torn apart.

 

Until the brilliance goes awry

and colors of the rainbow die,

I chase my rainbow-colored dreams.

They are so grandiose it seems...
