Dreaming, an excursion into fantasy,

A thrill without danger,

Something like seeing

The flight of a soul..

Age and responsibility take their toll,

Growing up-time-change-loss,

All necessary adaptations of development

Building from one lesson to another,

All founded on organized principle.

Gaping into himself,

The weary man bends the scene to conform.

Almost beside himself

With boredom

and humiliated by his own idleness and ordinariness,

He is especially ripe

For a fall.

Perhaps, he reasons,

My existence

Might not be necessary.

      A well constructed poem (second word in second line: "thrill" not "trill")

      Thanks for following me Rudy.

      I' delighted that you got something out of it. Each short story or poem or article has different meaning to different people. Thank you for the comment

      This reminds me of an old country song. I wish I could remember the name of it, but in the chorus line the singer repeats "Lord, I feel so unnecessary." My mother used to love that song. Good poem.
