Reality is Beautiful

by on November 15, 2013

The eastern sunrise is usually prettier
Than the western one
The harps placed at the gates of heaven
Are perhaps not as loud as a nightingale
Almost entirely not as half as enchanting

The coolness of weary waters
Is much less colder than the contempt of vile souls
Though the contemptuous hypocrisy that exists
Is a horrendously chilling concept

Conceptually speaking, utopia is ethereal
The temptation of Elysium however,
Is not quite as tempting as that insurmountable need
– to continue to feel –
Warm blood coursing through your veins

Which would you rather choose?
To be with your lover, now, in the present,
Far, far, away from the throes of separation?
Or the promise of spending a countless life,
Over a countless time, beyond this pointless grime?

I like assumptions. They make life easier.
Especially when messiahs without a driving license
Drive away abstract hazards.
Assumptions are fantastic.
But in the end, reality is beautiful.
