The Town Where Dreams Go To Die

The people here are doomed
Even though they try
Oh God I can’t imagine
Being further from the sky.

Dreams are born in childhood
Then swiftly pulled to earth
The saddest thing of all
Being trapped in town of birth.

Abandoned by the railroads
Held fast with ties of kin
No courage for adventure
Just wealth and shiny things.

One cannot help but wonder
If these people tried
Could they reach an altered mind-set
Once all removed from lies?
