I have a dream...
About a hundred or two.
And they seem to revolve
Around one person- You.

I want to get married,
To have a few kids.
Then smile at the camera
Kick back, and live.

In all honesty though,
I have to admit-
I want to have freedom
The chance to just quit.

To see the whole world,
Ten countries or more.
And fly through the mountains
With dangers galore.

If I can't have that
I'd certainly settle
Near someone who listens,
But never would meddle.

And if I couldn't-
Have something so small,
I'd rather have you
Than nothing at all.

For in this thoughtful
Yet sad strand of rhyme,
I just have to realize
One dream at a time.

So I'll go watch,
See you living my dreams.
'Cuz nothing is right in this
Reality it seems.
To be honest, I've been having a bad night.

I got hurt incredible easily and now I can't stop thinking about how unfair life is. Well, my life is.

And I was just trying to write a journal entry, when I saw the prompt for #Heart-of-Poetry ----> "Reality" [link]

So, basically, I feel like the one person I have my life intertwined with is living out my dreams. I'm stuck at home, and he's doing things that I would kill to do. And... Well, I sort of blew up on him tonight. So I wrote this poem.

He won't care, because he doesn't understand poetry at all. Actually, he doesn't really understand or care about anything that's important to me. But I know he cares about me. And that's pretty serious.
He doesn't get why I hate him doing things. And in my reality? It's because I envy him like crazy. I want to be in his shoes, and I know that I never will be. It's impossible.

So this is my heart poured out. I hope you enjoy.

I like the poem. I won't go into small technical problems since this was to vent out and not an attempt to write something awesome. The meaning is clear and registers well. The thoughts are solid and I like them. So over all nice poem

About the description... I am sorry to say life is not unfair... It is life. It is not a bed of roses in honesty; it is like living in a thorny jungle and if you are stung by a thorn you say "It is unfair".

The reason I said this is simple. I know it is not easy but be strong. Know your strengths and weaknesses. THINK about what has happened and what your purpose in life is. Then strive for that purpose. I might sound like rambling but I have been through what you are dealing with.

Mhmm. It was really just a venting poem.

I certainly realize that life is unfair. Sigh. That's one thing I tried to throw into my poem- That I'd still settle for it, and I'll just sit back and watch.

I've been trying to find my purpose lately. It's amazing that you mentioned that.

Well here is a work I recently wrote on life being unfair. It might not make you change your mind (it might not appeal to you at all but still)

and like I said. I have been there, done that. Unless a person has a reason in life he feels worthless. he wonders what he can do and thinks more about what he cant but wants to.

If you want to, then try hard. Otherwise look at the talents that you have. :)

Really well done, something many can relate to. We all have dreams, we all envy someone, but in the end you settle with what you get.
