reality vs illusion

comes into being
with my birth
with my death

what i assume as mine
what you conclude as yours
rise and fall
within you and me

    Beautiful. Lucid but deep to the root. A sense of reality which is mostly like illusion. Illusion where everything and everyone vanishes when I die. So everyday life perhaps the illusion. reality is ocean-like soul from where my own bubble has come out.

    Well-written philosophy by poem. Thank you much.

    Live long...write more...
