Deliver me reality, Shining from your face.
Upon a golden platter, your place it takes.
The cries of a million, a voice portrays.
The laugh of a few, echoed whats erased.

You can call me a dreamer, my hopes too high.
A fool, a believer, eyes set on the prize.
You can say I'm madness, your ways in line.
A death, a sadness, to the lie i climb.

I really enjoyed the subtle rhyme, which I thought went well with the theme. I disagree with you that "ignorance is peace," but overall, the poem had a very lulling quality to it that I liked. Good job and keep writing!

Thank you! (: It means a lot to get feedback, especially that nice! Yeah, i just thought that people fight over such trivial things that if we were ignorent towards them then the world would be a better place. Also, the world can be painful, ignorence is a great way to escape even just for a moment (:

Actually, I completely agree with what you said about ignorance. I always say "ignorance is bliss" and no one ever gets it....I rest my case.

Thank you (: I think its just a matter of opinion about ignorence being peace or bliss, but yeah it can certainly be useful to block everything out sometimes. Thank you so much for the feedback :D

If you put music in it and add a couple other verses, it would be a beautiful song.  I love this!

Yeah, when I read this, it really had a musical soul to it.  I wish I am able to do that and I just thought I should tell you.  I know you can do it!
