    Is life a dream
    A fantasy on a stream
    No, it's hell on earth
    There's no compassion
    No transaction
    Good times are scarce and far apart
    Many people have no heart
    Born into the world with no racial identity
    Yet people still want to get rid of me
    Searching for love in all the wrong places
    Where love is no where to be found
    Screaming in rage but there is no sound
    Standing in bewilderment with my chin on the ground
    Looking at the mess I'm around
    Is this life
    Is this strife
    Yes, it's both
    But it's my life

    Life can be a depressing, distressing experience at times. The silver lining in this, is that a brighter day will come with time, and what you do with that time. I could feel the sadness in this.
