Reality Strikes

Reality Strikes short poem

The gentle touch of the breeze
Unfolds the fragrant petals
To have the nectar, the bees
And butterfly on it settles.

All around is green
The nature’s carpet laid.
The blue sky above, and
The clouds giving the shade.

The rainbow forming the arch
Causing spectacular scene
The Romantic world’s portrait
As it always has been.

The blood shed and the kills
The ruined young and women.
Drugs and likes that thrills
The skeleton shaped human.

Chains of discrimination,
Whites and blacks!
Evils of modernization,
Ethics and goodness that lacks!

A chaotic world around
Confusion everywhere seen
The Reality of the world
As it always has been.
