Reality Can Never Disappoint Me
I touched the world lightly, to feel its heartbeat
the pulse of life beneath the things,
and I know that this heart beats for me,
like I’m the only one it ever sees.
Through life’s ups and downs
I have asked myself this question,
and every time I do, life’s heart skips a beat.
It can’t bear the shadow I breathe into it.
There is too much love and beauty to trample
under foot, and who am I to dump regrets into its dreams
when all it wants is love?
I look out to the world to see its beauty, its freedom, its resilience.
I look inside myself to mind the seeds of my days yet to come.
So, to return to my question;
I breathe my soul into this world with every breath I take
and thus, reality can never disappoint me.
