About the Poem
I wrote this poem when reality became very clear in a situation. No matter how much we think we have control of our lives, the real surprise is when you see what your life really is . . .
|Reality is that slap in the face
When you think you have the world by the tail
And life seems to be moving at your own pace
When you feel like there is no way you can fail.
Reality is there to open your eyes
When you find you were walking with them closed
And it shows you a sight that can surely make you cry
Because with reality, it shows you what you already know.
Reality breaks a person's heart and soul
And destroys dreams and hopes that a person feels
The truth and only truth is reality's only goal
And it doesn't care whose world that it might kill.
Reality keeps me in a state of mind
That I know it has complete control
But sometimes my dreams overtake reality I find
And love lives for a while in my heart and soul.
Reality is not fair.
Reality does not care.
