Why do we keep dreaming knowing it’ll never be
No expectations yet holding these wishes to a higher degree
Walking around with thoughts whirling round and round turning the world upside down
From limitless skies and otherworldly realms to dark dreary days serving as the graveyard of fun, folly, and plays
Like life and death itself
The end of a wishful thought is a death where the steady stream of hope and happiness comes to a sudden stop
And suddenly, the heart feels old and fattened
Like it’s been overfed with scrumptious fats but no energy nor real benefit comes
Except that its joy was only as long as it lasted, and suddenly it left like a parasite,
Leaving the body like burdened baggage.
Are these dreams ravenous parasites?
Sirens of the imagination, mystifying you until you catch your breath
And fall back onto your feet
With reality speeding past you with a steady momentum
Is this when thoughts become things, and reveal their true nature?
That indeed, you’re not worthy of such imageries, rather let it be enough that you can even witness a mirage
