Chains Of Reality

Don’t you wish to just rewind the past

And live a life from the start at last?

Wishes like that never come true

And there is nothing you can do.


You do not understand how the World looks.

You try to comprehend it through books,

Though reality sometimes is not what you desire

And you become the greatest liar!


You break chains with your pen,

And get out of the darkest den,

You discover a brand new place,

Where happiness and peace will us embrace.


Alas, it is all a dream, you are still trapped,

In cold metal you are wrapped.

You cannot face it, it is too sad,

And if you do, it will drive you mad.

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Well done and well written. The curse that is life. Most trudge through it. Some cant take the pressure and give up far before there time. And there are even some who are taken. But, writers take life and bend the rules. They create whole new worlds and laws that defy reality. It is both a gift and a curse. For no matter how beautiful the written world is, it must always end. Once the pages are done and the book is closed, the poem flipped over and the letter folded we are plunged back into our reality. Well done. :)
