A World Away Are We

Things that might have been

Now might they never be?

What once we thought was Heaven sent

Now a world away are we

In shiftless moods the fogs descend

Fast lives filled with missed subtleties

Do we understand or do we just pretend?

When a world away are we

Thoughts fractures by perception

Leave us treasured shards of memories

Reality’s masterpiece or deception?

When a world away are we

Life will grind us down to size

Until the very day

In an epiphany we realize

That we’re not a world away.
