Afternight


Re-programmed for our daily life
Brain full of new and original strife
How is it when we first awake
We have to momentarily decide
Or ask the question
Who am I?
What is the plot?
Oh Hell!
I had forgot
I'm in that life again
Oh No!
I'd rather be asleep my brain
Can't cope with this another day
All those problems
Go Away!

Yet
Will does get you out of bed
And in a moment it be said
The programme set into your head
Will start you on another day
Act II
Scene I
Just like a play

    Yes, real life is just like a 'Play' as our dreams, the only difference is that we can't control it as the DIRECTOR, instead, we can only CONTROL our body and movements until our Mind, Body and Soul are alined. Loved it! As all your art, thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
