Road To Royalty



He had been, he thought back to the early days, like the unknown superhero. Unable to find his destiny among that of those he did not identify with, he waited endlessly for an unknown opportunity to present itself.

For what, he wondered, had his imagination pulled his heart away from the world of living into the world of fantasy? Was this invisible life really worth the sacrifice of the visible? Could the pleasure derived from the days and nights spent in hours of sleep between short periods of waking dreams actually be more satisfying than the other possibility?

In sleep only did he realize the potential locked away in his soul. Yet, something inside longed for a chance to experience the feeling of victory when the sun ruled the sky.

Hopelessly, he waited for the milky white of the moon to splash a pathway of light back to the world where he lived.
