    I daydream. I dream so strongly

    that my imagination becomes more tangible than reality. I'm afraid of the day that I realise it's all pretend. It might not be completely bad. At least I will be living my own life instead of the lives of the people inside my head but I think I'd rather be one of them.

    Just Saying...

    I'd rather die early knowing that my dreams will never come true than live a long time not knowing that they will come true or not. I'd rather know now than waste the rest of my life wishing.
