Society’s Painted Dreams

I used to see the world through jaded eyes,
bedazzled by luxurious things I could hardly afford.
It took acting lessons
to deliver the picture I was painting.
I wanted everything that I saw everyone else showcasing,
that’s how I received the message
society had channeled into me.
I couldn’t see the bigger picture;
I had to wean myself off of society’s painted dreams.
