Living or Dreaming - Poem

As the Sun rises bright
burning up the darkness
I step out of my room
waking up from a nightmare

I walk on the road barefoot
sometimes run or drive a vehicle
where everything & everyone around
seems like a daydream

A dream which I’m living
since I came to existence
or is my existence also an illusion
from my dream?

I spend my days trying hard
to wake up from this illusion
believe it is true and
I do exist

But failing is my routine
I fall on my bed in the night
confused and tired from
an endless daydream

As the night gets darker
my foot slips into a
trap of never ending
nightmares

Yes, A nightmare in a daydream
making me believe in
the illusions wired inside
my head

Now everything around isn’t
just unreal but seems cruel
Like a demon whom I can’t
run away but just follow

The unreal world around
tries to get inside my brain
and throw me away from the
reality

I fall hard breaking my dream
I wonder all these years
I’ve been Living or Dreaming
all the time


Poem Description

Have you ever felt that whatever is happening with you or around you is unreal?

I am not sure about you all but I do feel it every single day. I often doubt everything and everyone around me if it’s real. Even my own existence.

This poem “Living or Dreaming” is based on the same experiences. I’m not sure if I did express it well but I gave it try.

Have you ever felt the same way? Whether you’re Living or Dreaming all the time?

Let me know in the comments section below.
