Reality

Reality became too harsh
So I escaped with my pen
Going back to my happy
Wanting to relive it again

I changed just a few details
With my pen I made them real
Erased the bits of sadness
I added my own appeal

As I polished the edges
Replaced my tears with a smile
I basked in the loveliness
Enjoyed happy for a while

Before me is the answer
I can rewrite reality
Pen and mind have the power
They can shape eternity

Inspired by Dinda Minardi's poem "Hi There Reality"

    I agree with you Richard, we can re-write our reality anytime we like, that is the power of a good writer with a flowing pen, As for Ronald Doe, he is a writer who I happen to like his work, and no relation to any John, have a blessed evening hugs xxx
