When reality strikes
my dream’s come through
Life’s just begun
Life’s just begun

The feeling of finally seeing the stars after travelling so far.

The idea that the dream that you had when you were five could become reality.

But reality is a danger,
and truth is her weapon.
It is a deadly encounter that will tear your aspiration limb from limb.

Leaving it intoxicated on a pavement of what ifs.

In a state worse than the end of life itself.

At a time, I am inspired
at other times, I am down at the sight of delay torture.

But when reality strikes,
that’s my dream come through, life’s just begun
