Hopeless culprit

Preferably being a Walter Mitty type  

Makes me indicative of daydreaming 

Which explains my aberrational ways  

As far as the world at large is concerned  

And I foster the same but only in reverse  

For me, it is the world growing strangest  

People lacking true closeness and trust  

Once learned decades prior by examples  

Cynicism has overcome those lost traits 

Trading values for any brief conveniences   

We are in too big a hurry for a windfalls  

Settling for less than first bargained for  

Because we undervalue our true selves 

Once we have lost sight of our… dreams
