You Can Deserve It and Still Not Get It

[with apologies to H.E. Peter Griffin]

If you do not want to get overwhelmed
by the ugly face and uglier body of reality
invent a myth
believe in it, nurture it
let it take over your life.

One billion souls leading lives
of quiet desperation,
does it matter
deserving or not deserving?

Getting it or not getting -
therein lies the rub,
my Lord !

How long can I wear my Pink glasses & look at the world...
For one day I WILL realize & THEN it will be too late...

in life,
sometimes you get it
sometimes you don't
and all the times you don't -
life gets you...

blue athena, your comment inspires me to write another poem here... which expresses the same sentiments. Do take a peek.
