Fairytale Endings

Let me take you back…

to what seems now like myth,

back to the days when the best stories started with…

Once upon a time…

back to the days…

when till death do you part

really connected a couples heart.

A time when life and dreams were simple…

and the news didn’t shock us so.

Satisfaction came in the little things…

like sitting with loved ones in front porch swings,

or sitting with grandpa drinking peanuts and Coke.

The ways of the past now seem so cliché

and look at the prices we now pay.

Remember how good it feels to be in a time…

without too much reason or rhyme.

When simple things like boxes were fun.

We played in the rain and made mud pies…

and old men were swapping fishing lies.

It all seems now like it is in a land far far away

and happily ever after is only what we used to say…

because we wont settle for what our parents had.

We strive for better all the time…

and never once feel that less is more…

or feel that it is okay if we’re poor…

We just live life in a reckless way

shocking ourselves and each other every day.

Running away from being cliché’

We hit the day at a pace from which we can’t stray!

Because if we do…Oh parish the thought!

We’ll lose our chance! That one shot!

That shot at something that came so easy to our grand parents.

The ones who stayed TOGETHER for fifty years…

happily ever after till death did they part.

If we don’t run we wont have a chance!…not one shot! at a life like those stories

the ones they used to read us…

back when life was simple.

It seems like a land far far away…

A time when happily ever after was not just something they used to say…

It seems like a myth from the past that we all strive for at a break neck pace…

striving to be unique yet still searching for what others found easily without the chase…

our own… fairytale endings.

      LOL…No truer words said! But it always seems like we get trapped in these day to day things and the fairy tale endings never materialize in a way that is noticeable…till the END! HAHA! Have a great rest of the week Keith!
      …and may you Huskers do well in the Big 10!
