Lose Myself 

I delve into a reality that is not mine. 

I get lost in words that are not mine. 

I lose myself in thoughts that belong to people created in my head. 

Their actions seem to impact me more than those around me.

My mind is caught up in a fantasy. 

A world where good trumps evil;

A world with solutions undeniably present;

A world where magic thrives;

A world filled with wonder;

And a world where anything is possible.
But, I have to remember to come back to reality.

To live the life that belongs to me;

To live in a world where evil prevails;

Where everyone is too scared to do the right thing;

To live in a world where problems grow in size, and solutions float farther away. 

To live in a world filled with monotony;

Where wonder ceases to exist;

A world where possibilities diminish.
I therefore choose to bury myself in the world where everything is easier.


To Know

What the future holds, nobody knows. 

We live in a state of confusion, fearing the unknown.

Would it really be useful to know everything?

Would knowing everything that will happen to us-

A year from now,

Or, a month from now,

Or, a week from now,

Or, even a day from now help us in any way? 

Would it really benefit us to know what is going to transpire?

Or, would that just send us into a spiraling void,

Where the only thoughts we have is-

What is the point of it all?
People say “Ignorance is bliss”.

And in not knowing what the future holds,

It stands true. 

But not knowing right from wrong,

Not knowing how to tell the truth,

Not knowing how to admit we are wrong,

Not knowing the difference between good and bad,

Is not being ignorant,

It is a simple case of being human. Because, it is easier to do the wrong thing,

It is easier to lie,

It is easier be stubborn,

It is easier to choose between something easy, and someghing difficult.
