Candy Reader Poetry: When Your Imagination Ruins Your Certainty

Some of our notions in life are deceptive-and yet we choose to follow them.
GIF Giphy

I was once a young dragonfly wandering through the sea of chartreuse grasses
Not knowing the odds of getting hurt by their spiky tails
I crawled and stayed there until blue skies turn into tangerines
I flew away with brightness and comfort
Like everything in this pasture holds radiance
Like everything here is fine

But as I grew older I realized something
That even if this field looks lively and engaging
Some things here are still callous and cutting
Like the grass where I share all my memories before
Is now lifeless as it longs for care
I now see blue skies not only turn into tangerines
But also darkness as the time hops in

How ruthless expectations can be
That they oppose to what we call certainty
As raw as the shamrock pasture my mind was
I never imagined myself getting hurt because of my false imaginings
Truth be told as now I see
Some of our notions in life are deceptive
—and yet we choose to follow them
