“One mans reality is another mans fantasy”


 

 

I don’t know who said it,

But somebody surely did,

 

Is reality fantasy or the other way around,

In which direction are we all bound,

 

Up towards the heavens,

Or to hell far down under the ground,

 

Should we worry & stress over our end,

Or just wait and to the Gods our actions defend,

 

Our world is full of the blues,

But black, grey & white bring us good news,

 

Do you look forward to tomorrow,

Or regret what you did yesterday,

 

Fantasy is the beginning,

Reality is found as the thing,

We live for the present,

And hope we can pay life’s rent…

DEAR KNAVE WUSS ... A WELL DONE, AND TRUTHFUL POEM ...

'ONE DAY AT A TIME' ... THAT IS THE 'SECRET'.

YESTERDAY IS GONE - WE CANNOT CHANGE IT!
TOMORROW IS BEYOND OUR REACH - UNKNOWABLE!
TODAY - AAH! WHAT CAN I DO TODAY?

WHEN MY EYES OPEN EACH MORNING,
MY PRAYER IS A SIMPLE ONE ...
"THANK YOU GOD, FOR ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL DAY!"

RAIN, SNOW, SLEET, HAIL ... DO NOT MATTER !!!
I AM STILL 'HERE' !!!

PEACE, DUDE ... SIR CUR ...

Dear old Ma says that she put a stop payment on your latest reality check since she heard that your check to your dear brother to purchase his dream cave house bounced. She says if you send him a check that actually clears, she'll lift the stop payment on yours.

Guess I have to agree, it's damn hard to pay life's rent, when your reality check bounces. Couple of great lines Ed.

I concur with Jude, and also, in my instance, keeping evil from my beloved wife. Good work here for a bald-headed alien. (-: rlc
