The Danger Of Dreaming


Shhh...

Danger isn't always loud and angry.

Red, fire engine, fire, clouds.

A fight doesn't always end when you've been knocked down.

Fight, punch, fruit juice, islands.

Sometimes, the world will try and convince you that dying is the most polite thing you could do.

Please, thank you, no I don't mind at all, go ahead. 

Sometimes, they will make giving up feel just like going to sleep.

You've done enough, rest now, there's no need to carry on. 

You are not in your bed. You are on the street. And you need to wake up and fight.

Now.

The bold and the italics -
the correlation especially 'punch, fruit juice, islands'. :)
I for one, am blown away.
Raising a glassful of punch to the Fight named Life.

This is exactly what I needed to hear, also.
Thanks for saying so.

I don't know how you knew...but it's true. And the world has me convinced. I'm sorry- it's just that sometimes I'm sure it's the only way for anyone to win at all.

And now, there is just the finality of resignation, defeat. I don't want this fight. (I can't find anymore reasons.)

sometimes I do feel that dying is the easiest way out and but other times I feel I can still go on with what is going on with me so I decide to still fight...
