Mansions Of Glory
28 January, 2005
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Living in your mansions of glory
Hiding behind your pearly gates
Drinking yourself into oblivian every night
Crying "I have nothing...I have nothing"
When you have everything there is

But where is your happiness
Where is your picture perfect world

Caged behind your stained glass enclosure
Onlookers stare for a peek into your happy life
The illusion of your happy life

You smile to yourself behind glazed eyes
Lifting the crystal glass to your painted lips
Hoping maybe this time.. this time
You might catch a glimpse of it yourself

This wasn't how it was supposed to be
When you dreamed it as a child
Of living in your mansion of glory
Behind your pearly gates
In your picture perfect world
You thought life would be so great

Applause Applause Dreamer! What you've typed is so true! Millions of dollars, a huge mansion with 27 rooms or more, with an inside pool, and all one could want, can give you everything but happiness and love. That's like throwing money away. Soon the person will start to get lonely in that HUMUNGOUS house, without a companion, children, and what have you. Very, very good poem Dreamer!
