L. S. Dryden · Poetry

Reality Bites

In my mind’s eye I could see

A world of wondrous beauty

Everyone has what they need

And every heart is happy.

I blinked and saw the scene change

As reality set in

Suffering and poverty

Defaced what I had seen.

Although a bit disheartened

I forge ahead determined

The goal is to get closer

To life as I imagined.

L. S. Dryden
