The R E M And Realities of Life...
Wings don't always fly
it's just a credible assumption
like saying a person with legs
can walk or bend at the knees.
Logic and Reason
be an erudite duo -
but at what point
does 'Vision' supersede it?
Yet, eyes aren't always perspicuous
as to images standing afront them;
'tis why sleep be quite rewarding,
for in Dreams everything is possible,
in one brief move of the Rapid-Eye.
Wishing we had wings to fly
far from Logic and Reason-
that sometimes burns our brains,
blinds and deafens our chimerias,
'til Death comes for our souls
shaking its head at the likes of us,
knowing too well that we be
praying and begging escape -
from Lifes R E M and realities.
