Distorted Reality

Distorted Reality

A Poem by SparksLC

~Let's all find ways to live and grow in this jungle of life; for we can only push ourselves forward~



Is a cold, trickling path

Discreetly laced with relentless failures and nearly impossible victories;

Set in place, for its travelers to painfully bear;

With a road that leads to chaos, and with which this chaos breeds a new form of humanity…

We are called The Animals.

Fighting, bleeding, and dying for survival.

Pushing and pulling desperately at the strings attached to our backs,

Hoping and praying someone will magically appear, and cut our fate bearing threads of life.

Forevermore we curse those with power, and at the same time we cling to them.

Wishing and pleading, that these oh, so powerful beings,

can heal our never-ending, anguish and turmoil.

And yet these beings, these God’s request remittance from their people.

Forever draining them of the precious life they held so tightly onto,  

Eternally controlled in a puppet master society,

Afraid to speak up, out, or against the string holders;

Fearful that if their inner most thoughts are heard,

They’ll lose what small bit of freedom they have left.

 these animals,

these BEASTS,

Are forever muted in fear,

Of this double-edged sword of reality.

And yet they still continue to grow.

Wonderful. I'm honestly at a loss for words, which doesn't happen very often so kudos!

Genius. If this was written out of complete boredom, I envy your dull moments. I like how you poetically expressed life's hypocrisy. Probably my fav so far.

This is very well done. You suck the reader into your world, and make us a part of this "reality". I liked it very much. Keep up the good work! :)

Very well versed. You are not only a very strong poet but an incredible story teller. I loved the beginning when you said "nearly impossible." it spoke to me as nothing is truly impossible so long as we believe. Nicely done!
