It's such a fine line
yet such a hard one to traverse
fall too far into either and you are swallowed
nothing anyone says can reach you
tread carefully or you'll be pulled in
Reality can sting you sharply
but fantasy can push it all from your mind.
If you choose to loose yourself
behind it's rosy glow
it will fight back with wishes and hopes
and misbeggotten indulgences, best left as dreams.
But then, a fantasy can keep you sane
help you to believe in a new reality,
It can give you the courage you need
to face a world that's harsh and cruel
with the strength to change the way things are.
And reality with it's hard edges
can bring things into focus
and make you see what's real
it can show you just what matters
be that your dreams or something concrete.
Just because you can't see something
doesn't mean it's not there
and just because you can see something
doesn't mean it can't be changed.
Take the willpower of your dreams
and apply them to reality.
But don't get lost in either,
that is easier than it seems.
