Crazy Fairy Tales (poem)

Updated on July 2, 2015

Let’s put aside those crazy fairy tales

And live our lives within reality

There are no silver linings to our sails

We do not travel on a crystal sea

-

So cast aside their dreams stored in your head

For in the end will they explain the pain

Or try to reason with the tears we shed

Their dust for us is grounded by the rain

-

It’s time to leave our childish world behind

And build our future on a sounder ground

Where sails of gold will come to see us through

-

Let’s take this boring life and be resigned

To face our truth and make our ground resound

By teaching fairies what we pixies do

      It was so true until the last paragraph with "pixie" in it. I almost fell for it. Other than that it was beautiful from beginning to end. I shared and pinned it.

      Hi Dear Mh,

      I wasn't on HP last evening, so I missed this one.

      My first reaction while still reading was ...WHAT? Then WHEW!

      Yes, I am all for not giving up on dreams, for we are still breathing and still here for some reason, and I think that is to love one another in this life until we take our last breath on this earth.

      Up +++ tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

      God bless you and keep you,

      Theresa

      I love the surprise ending, Martin. I thought this was leading to giving up on dreams and was pleasantly surprised!
