On the other side of Reality

A Better Reality...

You can find me on the other side of reality.
It is a place not much different than the place where you live.
You still have responsibilities and must work to get ahead.

But on the other side of reality- People still care.
They show you the respect-which they expect you to give.

Not everyone is nice- but you will never have to guess
Who is your enemy and who is a friend.

How great of a different reality,
Where people say what they mean,
And when they promise to be there,
It is a promise which can be believed.

In a reality where no one cheats and no one attempts to steal.
People would have to look you in the face and say just how they feel.

On the other side of reality,
It is okay if you don’t fit in.
Because no one will judge based on what God you choose to confess all your sins.

On the other side of reality,
I believe I will feel more at home.
Because sometimes this reality,
Makes me feel a hurt that turns me cold.

Maybe the reality- is that this world is cruel and insane
Because it is a sad truth for tomorrow,
When all anyone can care about is who they can blame.

What’s the point of all this,
If we never care for anyone else?
What’s the point of all this,
If we can never think about anything but ourselves?

The world turns dark in all the places that we create.
When we let the love, be overtaken by all the hate.

An argument that is had,
That no one will ever win,
But we keep fighting-for no other reason than to say that we did.

So sick of the News, The Media, The Lies!
So sick of turning on the TV to see who has died!
I am sad for the earth and what we have all done.
And when I wake tomorrow,
I hope that there is still hope that holds on.

I am not ready to give up
On goodness, faith or life.
But how will anyone ever live for more,
When no one is willing to give love or acceptance a try.

Dear Maam,

You got it figured out pretty well.

Be guarded by reason.Hope is only a goodwill ambassador with and for the ones with reason and judgment before action,only then is action good.Sadly most people have created a world where rational judgment is able to have the least say and the least ability to function properly and the situation is skewed,oscillating and unbalanced...which can only get worse without friends who are the ones who try to matter,in each other's lives...so stay close..

"Not everyone is nice- but you will never have to guess Who is your enemy and who is a friend." - How refreshing that would be if this was true in this day and age. Rarely do you know who is a true friend and who is a foe. It's hard to determine this even from those close to you (I've been getting a lot of that lately). Everyone seems to wear masks. When you do find someone ginuine, your not sure rather to believe it or not.

Very poignant H.C.

Awesome, H.C.! I must say that I agree with you. Our society has collapsed. Hopefully, one day, it will improve. Great hub!

Words well spoken!! Now if we can simply get all of us that feel the same to believe that a single person can make a difference when all "singles" work as a "whole". -Paul

Plarson -only if... it is a shame that people are so negative and difficult in this day and age-it is almost like half the world was never shown respect, kindness, love, or compromise... such a shame. If you ever figure out the magic words to get through to change... let me know :) thank for commenting and for reading my work :)
