Merrily Life Is But A Dream
but is it
Am I sleepwalking
through this dream we call life?
What is real or imagined?
I imagine most of what we experience
is the dream,
the mass hypnosis
of viral programming.
What if clocks were designed
to keep us ticking and tocking along,
never to question those twinges we feel?
When the world shifts and bends
outside of our norm,
do our eyes really see the reality of it?
Unused to the oddities
and divergence from normality,
we shuffle forward on numb feet.
I think I fell asleep
around seven years old,
integrating into “normal” society,
realizing that the world
didn’t see the truth as I did.
I succumbed to the dream,
this thing we call living,
but what if we are really sleeping?
And if so, how do I wake?
Eyes wide open,
yet closed to what could be seen.
Ears hearing, but unable to listen
amidst the hum
of electromagnetic influences.
Existing between multiple realities
fluctuating between frequencies
in our waking dreams.
or perhaps not,
life is but a dream.
The prompt, merrily life is but a dream, created musings of a philosophical nature existing in this rat-race of life. I invite you to play with this prompt and see what unfurls from your musings.
