A Dream Within A Dream - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

    On first reading, this poem immediately reminded me of the quest for truth and making sense of reality in a world where much of the knowledge of our surroundings near and remote is shaped by mega information/news peddlers. It has become less challenging now to see how so many of them have some agenda or other to promote, behind the veneer of journalism and/or reporting. In the process, we are left in states of suspended intellectual animation where uncertainties reign. We are faced with layers of realities to sift through to make sense of our world. No wonder so many take refuge in entertainment, sport and mindless games - - perhaps a necessary escape from this fabricated lunacy. Poe's poem would seem prophetic when read in that context.
