Why Dreams? - Poem by David Whalen

Why dreams? …
Why not
soft surcease instead?

Why disturbing dreams?
Why not
Nocturnal bliss instead?

Why such puzzling dreams
That wakes one then
Disappears from one's head?

Why scary dreams? …
That causes one's head
To toss on one's bed?

Why not dream
Of flying…soaring…
In stead of being led

Why not dream
Of what you would want…
Dream dreams to call yours alone

You dream what you dream
To me… so it seems
Because your brain has a mind of it's own
