Realities Truth

Realities Truth

A Poem by Bent Dragon (Eric)

A shower poem/song. Meaning it was come up with the shower. It's more of a poetry style of writing but it was intended to be sung. It is recommended that you read it aloud.


You want the truth
about reality,
you demand
complete fidelity.

Well the truth isn't fair
the truth isn't sweet,
devoid of compassion
it doesn't care
what makes your heart beat.

It's a dark reality-
You want the truth?
It's a cruel reality
lacking in the optimism of youth.

Twisted words.
Broken hearts.
Brutal truths.

All around is the lack of morality
everyone preaching infidelity.
What has carved this reality?
The answer is human brutality.

You want the truth
about reality.
You demand no bias
yet you ask the pious.

In those consumed by their beliefs
there lays a passion
one not ruled by compassion

You want the truth
about reality
yet you ask those
ruled by mob mentality.

Their beliefs aren't ruled by passions
simply created for what's in fashion.

You've asked for the truth
about reality
devoid of this pessimistic mentality.

The heart holds wonders few understand
The mind complex problems none comprehend
The soul a mystery yet to unfold

And so the world many wonders, holds.

But it's a dark reality we must admit
ruled by dark passions and human brutality
there is no room for that which we call-

Ignore the fact that the punctuation is brutal. I'd appreciate suggestions for a proper title since I just named it for this so it wouldn't be untitled.
