Reality

For years and years
I have had shelter
Of love and warmth
Of life so tender

And then I took
My first big step
To break away 
From all I had

To join the world
of dogs and sharks
To earn my keep 
And learn to bark

It is so hard 
And I am low
I wish I could
Just drop and go

But when I think
of mum and dad
what they went through
to buy us bread

Tough and low
That this might be
It is what we have
That is, Reality.
