Have you ever wondered if the world is fake,

Reality unreal

The smiles you shared, the tears you shed, the dreams that built you up,

Are nonexistent,

As if you lived a lie

The trees you touched, the words that echoed, the road on which you ran upon,

Have all faded into darkness,

Now upon a foreign land

A place which you cannot reach,

Never to be seen

Reality at once is lost,

But was it ever found?


The author's comments:

I wrote this piece about the world because sometimes I feel out of touch with the world. I believe this poem does propose an interesting question though. What if your past never truly existed?

Hmm...yes this poem does pose an interesting question...but that's what makes this poem so powerful! You've introduced a new and insightful thought, something most people probably haven't thought about before, so it leaves your reader with A LOT to think about. Fantastic work!! That takes a lot of talent and creativity, I'm impressed :D
