Let me dream…If it makes me happy to imagine myself in the finest of clothes and living in a penthouse that solely belongs to me…Let me dream. If it makes me happier to think of a near future where all my troubles are gone and I finally have a chance to know real peace…let me dream. If all I got is dollar left to my name and it’s a 1 in 500,000 shot I’ll win that Jackpot lottery…Let me dream. Trust me friend; I hear you on the whole “you gotta deal with reality”, Let me tell you something, I deal with reality every day: it’s stuffy, disappointing, tiring and sometimes it’s just plain heartbreaking. My horoscope says I can’t stay in my fantasy world; that I must deal with reality, I must accept reality. And my response to such nonsense is “why?” What’s so wrong with dreaming of leaving this hell hole for something better. For the nightmare to just…finally end? If it brings me even just speck of joy…let me dream. My dreaming isn’t hurting anyone…oh I see, you see me smiling to myself having a fabulous time in my fantasies and you feel left out because you chose to “stay in reality”, you honestly think I’m hiding something. That I must be doing better than I tell people. No friend that is not the case at all; truthfully, I find reality to be a Debbie Downer and my fantasies to be entertaining, they make life bearable for me. Fear not friend; like most fantasies and day dreams…they have to end. Reality will hit me eventually and I will be reminded of my circumstances once more…But I won’t dwell on that. For now…let me dream.
