Dreams - Poem by Ellie Corbin

We are dying slowly in today's world
Where children grow up by age ten
And we laugh before the answer of a joke is given.
Pain touches every corner of the Earth
While grace and beauty are lost in the dark
We deal with hurt each day
And learn to ignore it; learn to concentrate on better things
Our eyes focus on passion, love, life
And the problems aren't addressed, so they don't go away
After a long day, we close our eyes
Hush, Shhh, smile in your dreams
Just sleep, darling, sleep...
