DREAM vs REALITY

 

Like the brooks and streams,

Flows my stream of dreams,

From high mountains,

To the rigors of extremes.

*

Whichever way one sees,

It glees,

But for dream to realise,

One has to besiege.

*

For in the applecart of life,

Nothing is simple,

But in the garrison of mind,

Nothing is invincible.

*

And between my dreams and reality,

Something is amiss,

And the gap is wide,

For one dreams of future,

But lives in extremes.

*

For dream is the thrill of reality,

And reality the forerunner of dream,

And this is how life schemes.

*

In the harsh struggle of life,

Time to dream is a luxury,

And need to struggle a reality,

Where reality is my mother,

And alluring dream is the sky.

*

And from the temerity of wisdom,

Kindles the refractions of life,

Only to convey life is incomplete,

Without the spectrum of dreams.

*

Harsh realities are pin-pricks,

Fancy dreams are breathtaking,

And they live in different worlds,

Where reality bites,

And dream incubates.

*

So what is important?

To live in reality or in dreams,

For without reality there is no dream,

And without dream there is a boring reality.

*

And so I tread,

Three steps reality and one step dream,

For that is the way,

To beam.

*

Since I realised,

Dream and reality need to co-exist,

To balance your life.
