Harsh Reality

How cruel it was, that fateful day
When Reality came to call
No pause for invitation
He didn’t stop at all

He strode right in with muddy feet
And trampled all my dreams
Grabbed up my secret bag of hopes
And rent it at the seams

With desperate hands I scrambled
To try and catch them all
No matter how my fingers flew
I couldn’t stop their fall

I managed to snatch one or two
But crushed them in my haste
And when I opened up my hands
They crumbled into waste

Their ruin broke my heart in two
I sobbed out my despair
But Reality walked out the door
As if I wasn’t there
