We’re Not In Kansas Anymore (Poem)

Innocence is becoming a myth and a legend of a world which no longer exists.

The Twilight Zone, no longer science fiction or an alternate world, but has become our reality.

A promise, no longer a promise because our words have become empty sounds of weightless wonder.

Light has become darkness and darkness, light, but still, we’re all blind to see.

Truth is no longer the truth, everything is subjective and reality has become a virtual reality.

Yet we find ourselves empty grasping for what no longer exists in a world that can only be known and touched in the pages of history books.

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy,

and Oz has become our nightmare.
