Amidst the hustle and bustle of a billowy day
A thought popped into my head
Imagine that this was all imaginary
And in reality we were already dead.
I wouldn’t have to worry about the bills
Or keeping the kitchen clean
Any pain or suffering pulling me down
Would be an unfortunate dream.
It seemed like a good idea at the time
And I ran with it for a while
But then I spotted the obvious flaws
And decided the idea was vile.
I wouldn’t have made any difference
To other lives great or small
All that I had lived, loved and learned
Would cease to matter at all.
I decided that dreary and dull as the day may be
I would rather live my life fully right now
Than struggle for all of eternity
Trying to get back to where I am now.
