In my head is the image

Of what I always wanted to have,

What I always though my life would be.

But surrounding me

Is the reality of the life I’ve been given,

The hell we pretend

Is good enough for you and me.

And I must merge these two realities.

I must come to accept

The truth that surrounds you and me.

I must let go of wide-eyed hopes

That we once thought would always be

Out there, right in front of you and me.

God knows

There is more to live for, that there is hope.

But, God, I am still sinking

In this new found reality.
