Reality of Life

Pastiche poem by Tayler Schott

People often live in doubt,

even when their life is great

As a result we shut them out

thinking it will set them straight.


Soon they will see the reality of life

on how the world will come to an end.

Although many strife,

they need to learn how to depend


People judge life on riches and wealth,

but we all know it won't matter soon.

So we should focus each day on our own health

because one day we will swoon.


Beauty is everywhere, and we are blind.

Although we try to open our eyes,

we can not open our timid minds.

And we continue to walk without being able to rely.
