I Didn'T Realize

Hey, why are you sitting on a cloud, dangling your legs over the edge?

Come down to earth and find reality, not dreams, and make a pledge,
to try and make an effort to succeed
with your feet firmly planted on the ground,
and where no shadows can obscure your mind,
so that your future’s sound.

Hey, WHY ARE YOU sitting on a cloud?

Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize your situation,
but of course you're dead right, I can see that now.
Please accept my commiserations.

Eternal dreams!
