Happy Now

Happy Now
I saved the world today.
Sure, it was in video game,
but I remain a hero, just the same,
come celebrate my victory.

I saved a princess too.
Her pink pixels gleefully danced
I kissed her when I had the chance,
but who was I then? Hero or princess?

It’s more strenuous in life
to be the hero, save someone
when they’re lost, when they’re undone
and need that ephemeral something.

Golden day to darkest night
working hard to save ourselves
every one of our pixel-like cells
saving (kissing) all the princesses.

Is that what real life is?
Battling purple hurt scarlet pain
learning to be happy once again?
I’ve earned my right to be here.

I’ve earned my right to be happy.
