Nightmare or dreams

I dream of the grand halls, gleaming marble

Being welcomed warmly by the hosts like royalty

A smile plastered on my face, hiding the fears

Of failure and tripping up in my way to the dias

I come up and face all those waiting for me there

Am I the representative of the masses gathered

Or am I the one responsible of the running of the

Affairs of this grandiose setup, the one in charge

This thought is enough to jerk me out of that very

Uncomfortable and uncharacteristic dream at once

The burdens of this liability can wreck your peace

So dreaming of power and grandeur are not for me

Dreams which are a derivative of a desire to fix

The issues which we face today or a wish to be rid of them

Written for the following;

Your daily word prompt;






Word of the day challenge;
