Puzzle in Desperation

"Pursue your dreams!"  chippered voices encourage as mine pleads for guidance,

I used to dally over all of the time I had to figure myself out, but the availability of such dallies is waning toward empty with every blink of  my weary eyes.


I just want it to rain; when asked what's wrong, it'll do all my talking.
