I'd Rather Be There
« on: May 28, 2008, 09:33:25 AM »
Every day is such a chore,
Sometimes reality can be a bore,
How I wish I wasn't here,
Always hiding from what I fear,
There is a world that exists,
Faeries, elves, and dragons it consists,

I'd rather be there,
I'd rather be there,

Flying with dragons way up in the sky,
Living with the elves and drinking mead as we lie,
Riding a mighty steed with a bow in hand,
Becoming a king and surveying all my land,

I'd rather be there,
I'd rather be there,

Travelling this world with the best of friends,
Hearing a Bard sing of our might that never bends,
Being the hero who's said to be so bold,
Growing elder and becoming part of the greatest tale ever told,

I'd rather be there,
I'd rather be there.

This is a poem for myself and for anyone else who wishes this type of world was real, to all who wish to escape reality and live as an elf, ride on dragons backs, or wield great magical powers. Believe me...I'd rather be there...
Yo ho Yo ho!

I think you speak for so many of us, my friend.  Whether it is a land of dragons and elves or a world of pirate ships and privateers, there are many of us who would rather live in that world without the nightly news, political campaigns, and credit card debt.  Keep writing; it feeds your dreams and can help keep reality at bay.

Have you ever thought about putting these words to music and making a song out of it?

I'm not very musically inclined - maybe I will put this to song in the shower  ;)

I agree with Blackbead, this belongs in song! Perhaps you could enlist the help of one of the entertainers at your home Faire?

Thanks for sharing!
