when fantasies collide

when i was younger
i thought life
was a destination...
 
 
...at some magical point
everything came together
and we lived
happily ever after
and with that illusion
i carried certain fantasies
fairy tales perhaps
 of what
the perfect life
 looked like
and then i continued
to have disappointment
pain and heartache
i felt let down
discouraged
cheated
angry even
now i am learning
that the true problem
is my fantasies
were flawed
and life is more like
a journey
i need to rearrange my
expectations
and simply appreciate
 what
i do have
to be grateful
for what's surrounding me
to love those closest
to my heart
to simply be thankful
for what is
