What to do when your head’s in the clouds,
Nose in a book,
And dreams fill your day?
What to do when you see faeries,
Magic in the air,
And goblins in the night?
What to do when you long for a story,
To sing you to sleep,
And there’s nothing but silence?
Reality can be rude,
But then you see the sun rise.
You hear laughter and then you know,
Life isn’t a fairytale.
No knight is waiting to carry you home.
There’s no such thing as spells and potions
To curse someone or to love them.
You aren’t in the middle of a terrible journey,
But you are the main character
In your own grand adventure
Friends can’t see everything,
But don’t shut them out,
Simply because they aren’t figures of folklore
Come to whisk you away.
Enjoy what you have
Not grieve what you don’t.
Live, laugh, love
Because it’s all you can do.
Help others and let others,
Reality may not
Be full of mythical creatures,
But let that not be a disappointment.
There is a time for stories and
A time for truth,
So do not confuse the two.
