When Reality Hits You

Before reality hits you, problems are

small, issues fixable, and faults 

acceptable. Everything easily 


Before reality hits you, life seems

easy; no regret no fear no pain. 

Blissful ignorance is its name.

Once reality hits you, your problems

seem huge, issues impossible, faults

unforgivable. Nothing seems fixable. 

Even though after reality hits you, life

doesnt seem easy, you regret, you

fear, you fall. It's when reality hits you 

with knowledge, that you can help the

ones you never saw before.
