Some Lives Have Scripts

By Tony DeLorger © 2014


Driven by denial, many souls play out fantasy,

live their lives on a lit stage with an imagined audience,

supporting their reckless abandon of truth,

dedicating their lives to preconceived illusions.


Over time they build belief structures,

foundations for their wanted scenarios of life,

each brick set in concrete, strong and immovable,

and far from cognizant admission.


Fears forever forge these paths of fantasy,

for truth is a pain unwanted and suppressed,

and life somehow owes them betterment,

without effort of movement, change or risk.


Blame is a characteristic stance for these souls,

convinced in their righteous undertakings,

and devout in their protesting and anger displacement,

to find a target for their unconscious rage.


On the stage with these souls,

one encounters a loss of vision, a relinquishment of reality,

for the delusions run so deep, even they see nothing,

of themselves, the truth or the circumstance within which they reside.


Honesty from them, is quite virtually impossible,

unlikely in a random universe,

and on this stage, one can never be right, only tolerated,

for their God, is their right hand man.


Who can contend with a mind so lost to itself,

so conspicuously battered that reality withdraws into shadow,

and all those who step on this stage,

will live a life of confusion and placation, just to survive every moment.

I think we all watch people live out their lives in ways they think they ... are supposed to. I've been there... sometimes, we make a fool of ourselves.... when younger. :)))))

Seemingly fantastic but unreal, but often we watch and want to imitate these lives. How sad!
