Within My Grasp – Written Thursday 22nd July 2004 (Aged 29)

Within My Grasp

that dream,
the one i chased
since my early twenties
i have always been able to see
but like all dreams
the difficulty is believing it
i have peddled as fast as i can
i have held on tight with hopeful hands
and now,
it is almost in sight
its guiding light is illuminating
i feel so bright
i have never given up
on what i believe or even me
and the price i have paid
often left me spare and poorly made
but now,
as it approaches fast
i catch my breath
as if it is my last
for the dream is almost here,
within my grasp
