Mirage

Nothing but an optical illusion is a mirage
The heart and mind play tricks on our senses
We chase it and find it’s a mere delusion
 A fleeting transient picture is our life at every stage

The lure of fortune and wealth attracts many
Mansions and luxurious lifestyles do make a rich montage
These treasures and bundles of notes are only a dazzling chimera
You’ll  leave them behind, when life puts your act  offstage

We’re all on a journey but our destination is in camouflage
Along the way, life unveils its varied matches and pieces
Choose the pieces wisely to make your life’s splendid collage
Success, fame, money buys happiness is just an illusion

We portray pride and confidence with attitude and panache
In reality, we’re seeking our oasis in a state of confusion
