Poem number 11 NaPoWriMo
When this crazy world,
throws me for a loop,
when everything I try to do,
gets ruined in one fell swoop,
I close my eyes,
wishing I was in La La Land.
A land of fantasy,
where the world cannot take my bright colors,
turning them into black and white.
A land where laughter never stops
and there are happy times ever after.
When I hear that there are crazies out there,
trying to destroy the only world we have,
then I want to run and hide –
flying away in dreams to La La Land.
Finally when the world has become too much,
the smiles are few and far between,
no longer I read the screaming headlines,
but seek shelter on the net,
where I know my friends are.
It is the land that saves you from all that stress,
from anything that would turn your world upside down,
turning your smile into a frown.
We all seek shelter,
from the storms that bring gray clouds
and rain on our parade.
Best to create a world,
much like your own personal Disneyland,
where you can sing along with the birds,
converse with animals,
stand shoulder to shoulder,
with others who care,
spreading sunshine and love –
Then one day when the sun shines bright,
when I have more friends than enemies,
when it will seem that I can go on smiling,
hearing laughter all around,
it will be on that day when I’ll know –
I’ve arrived in La La Land.
