Reality or Fantasy

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

reality-or-fantasy

Days fly like birds on the wing,
time never seems to stand still.
Many times I often wonder –


Is it me in the mirror
or just a reflection of a memory?


I wonder if we’re really here
or perhaps on a dream-like journey.


Can it be that life is really a reality
or is our world just full of fantasy?


We seem to always be coming and going,
never knowing when the whirlpool,
of time will end.
So many things to learn about each day,
so many things to consider.
The journey goes on and on
and we must follow along.
Time passes and starts anew,
sometimes it seems we’re just racing through time.
At journey’s end we know we will find,
the rewards that are coming to us.
In the meantime, we must stand strong,
never give up, never stop believing,
above all hold on to your dreams,
they are the most important of all.
Never stop dreaming,
never stop believing,
just move along,
as each new year shines,
bringing a brighter future,
more joy and gladness -
always just around the next bend.

Thank you, John. This is one of my favorite of the songs about dreams and dreaming that Roy Orbison sings,

Insightful and relatable thoughts in your poem, Rasma.

Life is a journey, and we are all travellers. We have to keep on moving, and face whatever situation we may face all along.

As always, a wonderful and reflective poem.

Thank you for sharing.

Life is an adventure. Sometimes the lines between fantasy and reality become blurred. An uplifting piece of poetry. I like the Roy Orbison song too.
