I Haven’t Tried

I haven’t tried all of the possibilities.
Can my imagination give me surprises?

It isn’t too late to receive my hopes.
Can I fill my needs without bending reality?

My plans often vanish into shimmering images.
How do I plant them on solid ground?

I want certainty that I will succeed.
Why can’t time bring me the answers I desire?

    I believe that when our imagination stops surprising us then we shall realise even if we’re still breathing, we’re dead..
