[ CC ] This Chapped Ass Of Mine

 † † †  
I would not bet on my horse in this race if I were you---† † †
will get you nowhere in particular, which is my goal † † †  
Destination within reach, filling the world around me † † † †
with desired scenery --- though life currently is far from foal † † †
† † † † †
Perhaps upon arrival, I'll be too weathered from journeying --- † † †  
no longer care for liberating madness of youth's daydreams † † † †
Discouraged? No, as I have nowhere else in particular to go † † †  
minding not as long as you matter in my conscious streams
