This poem was inspired by the following word prompts:
Dreaming, possible, peace
Dream, Free, Pageant, Kinky.
Dreams VS Reality
Dreaming of a world at peace
A world where wonders never cease
A world where pain and poverty decrease
When will my dream become real?
Nothing kinky or perverse
Would make my yearnful feelings worse
Yet progress may in time reverse
Without true inner strength and zeal.
A pageant play with smiles of glee.
May make my inner torment flee,
But any relief is only temporary
respite, from what I’m free to feel.
Is it possible these peaceful dreams?
When nothing is quite what it seems.
And people turn to the extremes,
Only time alone will reveal.
What are dreams and what is real.
