Poetry ~ The Sleepers


The sleepers agree, as sleepers often do
that nothing is real if you can’t prove it true.

They call you naïve, that you dare to believe
that all things are possible; even things you can’t see.

The sleepers will argue, demanding you choose,
you can’t have it all; if you try you will lose!

But why must we choose between the land and the sea?
Why choose one path
when all paths set you free?

Why close a door, before another will open?
Why trust the words
the sleepers have spoken?

Why not wake-up and make your own way
seek your own truth and dismiss what they say!

This world is your own, alive in its history
veiled in time and shrouded in mystery.

Allow the sleepers their dream, for their dawn has yet come
but for each who awakens, a new life has begun.
