Vicariously

The reality is only
A figment concocted in the mind
My plans, the goals
And who I’ll let in
Within good time
My body slumps over
From the burden
Of the dreams I carry
Around
And everyone’s living
Life through someone else
Parents through their children
Lovers through their others
Or the characters
They read or view
Step up
And live your life
If you have the nerve
If you have your eyes
Open them
To the peak of
Height
You could reach
If only
You released the hold
On vicariously
