Fairy Tale Reality

We all heard stories as kids. The same old fairy tales which started with a lonely princess being trapped somewhere and one day a charming prince came from some enchanted land, rescued her, swept her off her feet and rode her away to happily ever after in a kingdom far...far...away...

Cut to Reality.

You grow up into this world, where everyone goes about their business as usual, everyone's trying to lead a good and respectable life, and everyone wants moments of peace and happiness in their mediocre, rather irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, Life. You're not the trapped princess in a tower maybe, but you're just like those thousands of side-kick subjects that walk the streets carrying burdens on their shoulders and minds. Life, as its meant to, just goes on....

And then there are moments, when you feel detached from this normalcy, and yearn to be shut-out in the mist of an illuminated fairy-tale, where reality is denied any access, where magic is the ruling law and where dreams are lived through the eyes of plausible hopes. There's an uncontrollable want to be in a place where the heart is the king that conquers the otherwise rational head and where decisions made always end in the right outcome. In this fantastic world of free-flowing reverie, the most heart-felt wishes would come true, and there wouldn't be a time of disheartened disappointment....

Eventually though, you open your eyes again, and you're back to this world. This world, where people don't always get what they want, and sometimes when they get it, it comes so late that it loses all meaning. In this world, disappointments are a part of growing up and learning to deal with the malicious occurrences of everyday going-ons. Innocence is lost to the realization of the dark side of things and simplicity is shunned in the race of being noticed among the millions of other earthly beasts grabbing for the same measly opportunities. Like savages, people crawl and climb the ladder to a perceived success, which shines in the distance like a treasured jewel , which when acquired just leaves an un-quenching thirst for a bigger ornament of desire. Dreams are often forgotten midst the traffic of responsibilities and duties and practicalities...leaving
individuals content overall, but having left behind some amount of spirit, some quantity of hope, and some portion of a zest to dream big and want more...

Then again, there are moments that occur out of the blue, which rekindle the rusty faith that young minds once possessed. Light shines through the enclosed entrances and for some time, Life takes a tangent path down the same fairy-land that was once deeply embedded in the minds of innocence.
I live my life as I'm meant to, stepping into the proverbial maze of the world, gradually finding obstacles and traps as I go forward. All I do is..find another route....while deep within, always hoping that when I turn the next corner, I will find the surprising moment where my reality mingles with the mist of the fairy tale....and I arrive to my kingdom of far..far..away.....
