Love breaks the dawn

But all we feel is the pain of hate

Hate that breed’s violence against out fellow man

Wish I could love freely

But it’s all just bittersweet

Life is a making of a fantasy you make reality

Reality you may not be truly ready for

But you still have to face

It’s all so bittersweet

Cause without love you can’t have hate

Both breed unstable humans seeking completeness

Seeking life that they believe everyone has

But to no avail

Everyone seeks the same and only have the perception of happiness

Happiness crafted by humanity

But are we truly happy?

Are we truly dreaming or just emulating what someone else calls success

Marriage and relationships the biggest sham or truly a need for human existence

It’s all so bittersweet

Without one the other is irrelevant

Birds fly freely or so we think, they follow the crowd to the destination sought by another


Is love an illusion or a necessary thing for survival
