A Fairy Tale Worth Living

Is it more worth one’s while

to live a life worth writing about, or

to write about a life that is worth the living?

*

Is it more worth one’s while

to act out a scene worth painting, or

to paint a picture that is worth a view or two?

*

Is it more worth one’s while

to take the time deemed necessary to dream up a fairy tale, or

to live a life worth earning the good luck it takes

to live out a fairy tale dream?
