Reality

Written by: Louise Reilly

Whats it like to be real,
Not living in an obscure fantasy world?
Whats it like to feel,
Emotions other than sadness and hatred?
Whats it like to be alive,
And grow old?
Whats it like to be five,
Then grow up with your friends?
Whats it like to love,
With someone loving you?
Whats it like to be unheard of,
Drowning in a sea of loneliness?
Whats it like to be in pain,
That tears you apart?
Whats it like to be slain,
By disease or bullet?
Whats it like to be dead inside,
When someone has broke your heart?
