They always tell you to follow your dreams;
To struggle and fight
“It is all worth it.
Nothing feels better
Than finally attaining that dream.
That’s where true happiness lays”
But what happens when you struggle,
To get to your dream
Only to realize
It is not what you thought it would be.
You built it so high in your imagination;
All the happiness and satisfaction.
But in reality it is nothing.
The Promised Land
Is nothing more than a Waste Land.
What happens then?
What do you do?
What do you live for?
Is it better to dream and do nothing?
Just to have an escape island
Merely a place to visit in your dreams
For when life takes its toll on you?
Or is it worth it to pursue
And risk shattering your dreams
And realizing there is no escape from this life?
