A Cannot Be Reality
dmartin

As I think about decisions,
 1
mistakes and their precision
 2
and the complicated thoughts
 3
that result in empty visions
 4
 
 
I can count on all my fingers
 5
the feeling that still linger
 6
and the emptiness, the simplic-ness
 7
that pulls me through the ringer
 8
 
 
But the places that we miss
 9
and the people we never visit,
 10
be it family, friends
 11
the insane, and even bigots
 12
 
 
But we're here, far from square
 13
every reason we find to care
 14
whether it's weather, for better,
 15
for worse and for the wear
 16
 
 
We raise glasses in cheer,
 17
it ain't fair the good ain't here,
 18
but it is what is, I fear
 19
not for nothing, drink your beer.
 20
 
 
But if I'm just sayin' something,
 21
swear it's better than nothing,
 22
give me a chance, I swear it's worth it in the end
 23
if you only see the real, stop living in pretend.
