In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Nightmares

I dreamt
I was living in poverty
My home was gone
My family replaced
My life controlled
A nightmare
Or a plan
By darker forces
Masquerading as leaders

The latecomer arrives
The straggler
Moving slowly and surely
Youth spent
Only to find
Everyone else departed
Leaving him
With only their mistakes
