We Turn On The News and Watch Other’s Realities

We turn on the news

To only find glimpses of other’s realities

To quickly find ourselves turning it off 

Not realizing that those we see on TV can never turn off the screen

Can never change the channel

Have a brief commercial-break

Put on pause to come back to

This is our reality

This is the reality

To hear of missile strikes, drones, ad bombings brings us to tears

but only for a moment

to only go back to our lives

Eating,sleeping, laughing, and playing

For when we turn off our TVs

Their reality will always play

as regularly scheduled
