Another clean-up, another poem found. This one was written on April 24, 1996. It features one of my favorite words at the time: wack.
I knew reality would come to me
I knew someday I’d have to face facts
But I never knew it would be so wack
Knew you didn’t belong to me
That you were only in my fantasy
Then, let me dream
I never knew
The real world could be so mean
In fantasy, everyone is super fine
In reality, there are none of this kind
In fantasy, everyday is like a kiss
In reality, everything is a diss
Everything is wack
I hope fantasy will take me back
In fantasy, there’s sunshine
And peaceful rainy days
It’s nothing but pain
If this is reality
Then fantasy take me back
I never knew reality
Would be so wack.
