A World-Reality


A land of make-belief, it seems
Is much more agreeable; it teems
With laughter and joy, and it beams-
But reality is most harshly deemed:

A world of only blacks and whites
Arguments, plenty of fights
Snaps and snarls, growls and bites
A world untouchable by light;

A world of tints and dull grey hues
A world broken, always subdued
Where adults cry, teens sing the blues
Would YOU live here? It’s yours to choose…
