The Reality of it All

Sometimes living inside your head is a nice place to be.
Shut out the world.

Reality can be such a harsh thing to deal with.

Thinking about something is one thing.
But, the reality...

That answer that you knew deep down has been confirmed.

And the reality is just inconceivable.

In our minds, we all win.
If we can dream such happy thoughts.

We don't get sick and die.
Our loved ones don't either.

Someday we will make the big bucks.
We will travel.

But, the reality of it all is that it isn't that simple.

Wouldn't it be nice though?

  1. Would be nice indeed, but reality then comes and smacks you in the face.

  2. Sometimes I really wish I had a holodeck. I think, if we had the money, we could travel and enjoy so much but, today Prince died at only 57 and money doesn't mean much then does it.

  3. You can be the director of the movies inside your head and it can be a much-needed escape from the sometimes harsh reality.

  4. I think that's why in my younger years I did enjoy day dreaming. I was always skinnier, prettier and more rich than in reality.

    1. Lynn, that is true. I always thought that i wouldn't want to change what happened because it all made me who I am right now. But, some things would be wonderful if they were different.

  6. Whenever I live in my head, I'm always told to get out.
    Apparently, even I think I am crazy.

    1. Al, maybe it is just too crowded in there.

  8. This is why we write. Even if just for a moment, it's nice to live in a world where everything happens exactly as you plan it.
