Here and There


It's so hard to stay in reality

When the mind is a better place to be.

Why suffer in the world of practical

When you possess a world that's magical?

You are a perfect being over Here

But There fragile mortals live under fear.

Here you accomplish all of your life's dreams

But There you die ere doing one it seems.

Here time halts at an eternal standstill

But There, in no time, you're over the hill.

Here you see yourself as a deity

But There you're a spec in a galaxy.

So Here's where you find joy forevermore

While There's a gateway to Nirvana's door.
