Is a Man a Fool?

Is a Man a Fool?

Is a man a fool to dream
of things out of reach,
to stretch his arms
and grasp at the stars themselves?

Is a man a fool to attempt
things that others tell him
he cannot do,
and then wonder why it doesn’t work?

Is a man a fool to put his trust in others
and hope they will keep their word
and this time
won’t break his heart?

Is a man a fool to love
with all he has,
to give his soul
knowing he is not loved in return?

Is a man a fool?

(Well am I? I mean, he, is he? Yeah that’s it, he.)
