Reality

What is reality?
Is it a thought?
Some sort of actuality
Is it the way we look at each other?
Mixing up truth with idealism.
What certainty does life offer us?
With all these thoughts succumbing to me
How can I really know what is reality
The veracity of this all is
No one truly shares the same love,
The same volume of authenticity
Only that which we know to be
We all have our own reality
What is yours?

Wow! Reality...I love that word, it slips off the tongue like something golden.  And what is it,indeed?  It is everything and it is nothing, because each indidvidual has a reality that is unique to them alone.  Sad, lonely reality.  What a misunderstood word!  Great poem.  I think you captured the essence of this concept really well.
