In this place I stand

Surrounded by friends

Smiles running through my cheeks

Like a sourceless river

Holding all to heart


In my closet I sob

Even when in company

I still see a reality away from them

I am just lonely


When black becomes bad

Our heads empty -devoid of reason 

In all reality

We are just lower humans

Here in my reality

All I see is diamonds

The source of their wealth

It's just different reality
