Life in a bubble

We live in a bubble

Of our own making;

A circus with high-wire acts,

With jugglers and clowns,

And elephants and lions.

Everyone is in a separate reality,

Based on a specific credo,

Speaking a different language,

Full of vanity and ego,

With distortion upon distortion,

In a kaleidoscope of changes,

With myriad shapes and colors,

Dazzling our senses

Time and time again;

Until it fades away,

Like a cloud in the wind.
