Shards of Reality by Shalora

Along this dry stretch of road

A smattering of shattered glass

Littering the grit and grass

Further proof of humankind only caring for itself

And even after picking up the shards

There’s no hope of restoration

And for your trouble?

Nicks in the soft pads of your fingers

Even trying to make the world a better place

Leads to tears, blood and pain

These scarred hands will remind the future insessantly
