Finding the 'Real' in Real Life

by Y. M. Roger


Life affords more chances than we could ever take…
Have you missed some just because your glasses are opaque?
Were a few misplaced amongst the busy-ness you make?
Did some slip by within your dreams while you were awake?
 
Have you missed some just because your glasses are opaque?
In life's routine, no left or right, vision can get blurred,
Bits you'll miss if you insist on focus ever forward…
 
Were a few misplaced amongst the busy-ness you make?
Crucial items on your lists, confirm things first thru third,
No room on there for mud puddles, pink posey buds or birds…
 

Did some slip by within your dreams while you were awake?
With your concerns on those events, you say must occur,
Dreams will fade, along with hope, 'til naught but death’s assured.
