Chasing Rainbows

chasing rainbows
not just one, but
another and another and another.
we spend our life
in pursuit
of that pot of gold
but the pot keeps changing
shape, and color,
and who knows
what it holds
for real.
It doesn’t matter if
it’s a dream, (and it’s always
a dream)
we need something
to chase
or we stop,
and the dream ends.
