The Real World

Regina Puckett


A little one is running circles around his mom and dad

Sand castles, waving lapping – nothing here can be bad

The sun is overhead – not a rain cloud or storm within miles

A day made for playing – a moment frozen in laughter and smiles

It’s too bad this time can’t be packaged to unwrap at a later time

But unfortunately the real world is waiting with its harshness and crime
