The Garden of Reality


In the garden of reality
the roses do not have a fragrance.

And the sky is not always blue.

The grass is not always greener.

But the lies
are always true.

The sunshine doesn't always radiate warmth.

And there's always a chill in the air.

Not everyone is friendly

and love
is not always fair.


(1999)

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
