Suffocating, scary, disturbing reality.
I want it to be a bad dream.
I want it to be just a dream.
Just a bad dream.
Sometimes when I am dreaming I am aware of it.
I know I can open my eyes and the dream will vanish like fog in the sunlight.
I am trying to open my eyes, to end the dream.
And I cannot.
I realize it is not a dream.
Disappointment and sadness settle in.
I see ignorance, greed, hatred and indifference.
Violence, bigotry and stupidity enveloping the land.
And people like zombies going through the motions oblivious to reality.
Oblivious to a coming crisis.
And I want to wake up.
Wake up to see that it is just a bad dream.
That people don’t see the poisonous entropy eating at our society, at our souls.
Because it is not real.
And I am trying to open my eyes.
To end the dream.
I am trying to open my eyes.
Again and again.
