Romancing Reality - Poem by Anita Atina

Play Poem Video

The ability to look at things as they are

Without the distraction of a fairy tale romance

No waking dreams, no repressed desires projected onto another

But the beauty of seeing what is, in clarifying light

No delusions of grandeur

Or of running away from the world

But the courage to look into a honest mirror

And accepting who we are

Beautiful, wrinkled, deep feeling

And maybe, finding who we want to be

Romancing the world, is a hollow chase

And reality is a pretty illusion

When the only true romance, is with your own soul!

    Brilliant, Anita! Taking the veils off reality so we can see it, and each other, with more clarity. 'When the only true romance, is with your own soul' - what a deep truth this is! (Report) Reply
