The Softer Way

March 18, 2009

Drama, chaos, exaggeration
The stories that allow
The tellers of those stories
To not see the real life
Arising around them

At all cost
They must protect the need
To protect the delusions
That keep them in safety
The relative safety of the dream

The tellers of story
The keepers of the lies
Touch the unbelievers
Give them something to cling to
Give them something to believe in

People will believe
All they need to believe
To live in the shadow
Of the lies of the dream
It is the way of the soft many

Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild
Prompt a Week
Prompt: People will believe anything if they want to badly enough
