Why Keep Going?

A crazy white lie did I tell last night,
To myself. I mean, who else would listen.
It had to do with love and giving;
A lightened heart, a tender misgiving.

I dreamed of living, a glorious life.
A life like no other, a blissful existence.
With family and friends, by my side, a wife.
A life like no other, the only existence.

And so it was, my perfect little world.
The sights and sounds, the boys and girls.
My family and friends, their destinies unfurl.
A figment of my imagination; the loops and swirls.

But the world came back, with a terrible vengeance.
It clawed and it bit, and it left me for dead.
.
.
.

Laying there bleeding, my vision all blurry.
I turn on to my back, and gaze at the endless sky.
A few wispy clouds, against a cerulean blue canvas.
It hurts to have fallen, and I can only ask 'why'.

Now on my knees, and feeling the pain,
I realize that it's time to pick myself up again.
On to my feet, but still crouching in vain.
"It'll take a while, I guess," I think again.

Stumbling along with a staggering gait,
I'm ever so lonely, but all I did was wait.
From dreams in the sky, to the jagged rocks of reality,
I understand that it's the way things were meant to be.

But what keeps me going? What am I trying to do?
I have no secrets, I've got nothing to hide.
To see what next, where, how, and with who.
And because I've heard the grass is greener on the other side.
