Is it better to sit in the dark-
Rather than know what’s going on?
Swim in deep oceans,
Not knowing what direction,
You’re going.
What is reality?
The first bite as a baby,
When your first born,
Then spitting out what you ate,
Not knowing what to say,
But know what you don’t like.
Dream a little dream,
That’s all we do,
Is a dream nothing but a waste of good time,
Only to realize what you dream,
Is only a dream.
Until that one day,
You wake up, or
Someone hits you over the head, saying,
“Get back to work.”
Then it all comes together, yes,
Our reality is a big dream,
What we don’t know will not hurt us,
But what we know, has already killed us.
