Who’s Who?

I’m not dressing up for Halloween
I don’t want to be the Red Queen
Or a Mermaid in a suit of green
No Rock Stars or Pirates mean
In no costume will I be seen
For I have no inner fantasy
To be anyone else other than me
And whether or not you agree
I like who I turned out to be
So on October 31st I’ll just be me

Not Carefree

In my imagination,
I see a day that’s red light free.
No stopping or starting,
Just cruising happily.
I’d reach my destination,
So very easily,
If I had nothing in the way,
To bring delay to me.
Yet life is not that simple,
And in true reality.
A few red lights are always needed,
To make me stop and see,
That often an interruption,
Becomes a great possibility.
One which could be missed,
by living a green light fantasy.
