Alternate Universe

It's like I'm all alone
In an alternate universe
People can be happy?
Life can be rewarding?
Death isn't the only option?
When did this happen?
How can all these people smile and laugh?
People are dying everyday
Children are going hungry
Animals are being tortured
Women are being raped
How can I be the only one thinking of this?
Am I the only one who cares?
Everyone else just smiles
Smiles and nods like it's all ok
Like nothing matters
Like no one is suffering at all
I don't understand their smiles
When all I have is tears
I'm all alone
Because they are in an alternate universe
