We go to the theaters and watch happy endings
But why are the movies so different from real life?
Would the movie be a hit if it ended in tragedy?
What if the conflict is not resolved?
The public couldn’t see something like that
What a horrible scenario we would have to endure
Isn’t it nice to watch a divorced couple get back together
Just before the wedding to another mate
Or long term friendships sprout into love
The good guys always win
Just when you think they are outnumbered
There is always one guy who comes in and saves the day
Are there only a few story lines that send us home happy?
And is that even one of the jobs of the producer?
Can we not watch as sorrow overcomes?
If we experience a realistic ending, would we enjoy the movie?
Or would we rather see something that seldom happens?
Most movies are the best case scenario where everything works out in the end
Everything doesn’t always work out in the end…
Is society so weak that we won’t handle reality?
Is this why we go to the theaters?
So that we can watch only what we want to see?
Here we are on this planet
All we can see is green grass and a blue sky
Could our population handle what we see when the backdrop gets taken away?
We have been shielded and protected from what we weren’t meant to witness
And when everything is sugarcoated…
It is hard to differenciate between reality and merely a dream
