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.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
