In Our Heads

Author: Kieran Furey

To help us get through life, I suspect that we all indulge in a fair amount of day-dreaming.

There’s a better world in our heads:
It’s the one we really live in.
Its days are sunned, its nights starspread:
A film with a happy ending.

We’re happy ever after there
Because we help each other out.
Death is distant and life is fair
And friendship what it’s all about.

There is no unrequited love
Where the girl always gets her man.
There’s no one to be jealous of
Where every man has his woman.

Heaven and hell are both unknown
And the four horsemen never seen.
The whole cosmos is benign
And life lived is its own meaning.
