Walking through our lives with blinders on
Won’t change the reality of our situations.
It makes the trials longer and the suffering greater,
But it never results in any meaningful cessations.
So take off the boxes and face your life head-on,
Experiencing the good, bad, and, inevitably, the ugly.
For only when you take your head out of the clouds,
Will life be as wondrous and awesome as it should be.
