La La Land

When this crazy world,

throws me for a loop,

when everything I try to do,

gets ruined in one fell swoop,

I close my eyes,

wishing I was in La La Land.

A land of fantasy,

where the world cannot take my bright colors,

turning them into black and white.

A land where laughter never stops

and there are happy times ever after.

When I hear that there are crazies out there,

trying to destroy the only world we have,

then I want to run and hide –

flying away in dreams to La La Land.

Finally when the world has become too much,

the smiles are few and far between,

no longer I read the screaming headlines,

but seek shelter on the net,

where I know my friends are.

It is the land that saves you from all that stress,

from unhappiness,

from anything that would turn your world upside down,

turning your smile into a frown.

We all seek shelter,

from the storms that bring gray clouds

and rain on our parade.

Best to create a world,

much like your own personal Disneyland,

where you can sing along with the birds,

converse with animals,

stand shoulder to shoulder,

with others who care,

spreading sunshine and love –

most everywhere.

Then one day when the sun shines brighter,

when I have more friends than enemies,

when it will seem that I can go on smiling,

hearing laughter all around,

it will be on that day when I’ll know –

I’ve arrived in La La Land.

    Rasma, I’d love to join you in La La Land. Like you the majority of my friends are on the Internet. At the moment, that is probably the safest place to communicate. Great a poem.

      Thank you, John and yes, the Internet is the best place to communicate at the moment. You can join me at any time in La La Land.
