The Two Worlds

The Two Worlds

1 min 258 1 min 258

I live in a place where truth is bitter, 

And you are given a daily dose. 

I live in a place where lies are told, 

And you still fail to be bold. 

I live in a place where dogs seem cute but harsh is their bark. 

I live in a place where everything seems light but is dark. 


One day sick of my reality, 

I shipped to a better world. 

Where my desires mattered

And the truth didn't hurt. 

It was lighter here, more optimistic. 

Finally, I thought life was worth living. 

I ventured upon this alternate truth

And discovered it bent at my will. 


But you should know when you are

Happiest that is when it strikes cos

It's also the time you have things

To lose. 

Suddenly with clutter, a bit of noise, 

I woke up and came back to my world.
