Blinded By The Beauty - Poem by Rik Bertrand

I have been blinded by the beauty of this world,
The lavish lands of paradise surround my soul.
I lay down on the plush green grass, a bed of happiness
And I fall into a dream that awakens my inner self.

I have come upon the scenery only seen in dreams,
And I take it all in so that I can cherish it in days to come.
I know that it will not last, for it is too serene and unreal.
The beauty shall slowly evaporate as reality reappears.

Why can we not live our life's in the dreams within?
Why can we not choose the realm of our existence?
I do not want to leave these beautiful surroundings,
This world, this dream, this paradise, is my sanctuary.

Yes, I am blinded by the beauty of this world,
Yet I see more Cleary than I have ever seen before,
Peace has become me and I am one with myself
Whether dream or reality I choose to stay.

Gather your thoughts and journey with me,
Place the blindfold over your eyes and dream anew.
You shall see the beauty, which I so dearly speak of,
And you too will want what is rightfully yours.

REB (MAY 2012) because it is there, you just have to close your eyes and picture it.
