Reality
Reality is a Construction...

Reality is a construction of
dos and don't,
wills and won't,
lines and boundaries,
obstacles and quandaries.

What is real
and what is not?
A line that's drawn
and potential locked,
buried inside
and left to rot,
never remembered
forever forgot.

A dream that died,
never achieved.
Spoken lies,
that you believed.
You can't do that,
think realistic!
Let go of that,
you'll never miss it!

Discovered the treasure
deep inside,
when you're old
and then you'll find
that if you had more faith,
believed in your dreams,
and looked past the roadblocks
somehow it seems
you could have done all
and those big things
are really so small...

Reality is a construction
of great and small things.
Reality is a construction,
constructed by you!

Hello authors! I go by Dorian T. Gray; it's my author name. I'm hoping that it can be a way to keep my legal self somewhat apart from my inner self so when I get to my destination I can live a somewhat normal, mundane-ish life... Well aside from the charities and other stuff that I hope to attend.

My aim is to present my work here in hopes that everyone will give me their feedback (critiques and encouragement) and polish me into a better author. I will strive to do the same. I think that we all have a chance to be great writers but we need each other to grind away the awkward and ugly parts and make our pieces shine.

Thanks for Reading,

D. T. Gray
