Go On Wake Me Up!!
Grab my tinted spectacles
Cut its maudlin tentacles
Force all musings to ebb
Their icky sticky cobweb
Stop me from chopping nose
To spite face with reality dose
Still hands flailing at windmills
force out of cocoon, get chills
Silly clown that I am
Wishing for honey n jam
Wanting head buried in sand
Hoping for utopian homeland
Life is never a cakewalk
Sift through its double talk
Stop dreams of this dreamer
Visualizing only life brighter
Give instead a taste of vinegar
Life is mix of bitters and sugar
Reality stark swabbed and hosed
Clearly in view delusions exposed
A realist sober and stern is born
The poet lies gasping all forlorn!!
The dreamer can know no truth,
not even about his dream,
except by awaking out of it.
An artist is a dreamer consenting
to dream of the actual world.
George Santayana American, Philosopher
The one person who has more illusions than the dreamer is the man of action.
Oscar Wilde 1856-1900, British Author, Wit
I am a dreamer. Seriously, I’m living on another planet.
