The dreams that make us look within
Make us review an alternate life inside
How the could have been… can be?
Or how the what was… really is?
Perhaps a way to uncover the dissonance?
recalculate the outcome?
re-experience the burden?
The perplexity onion
A sleeping mind continues to exert
A dozing psyche still sings
Sometimes we remember
Sometimes we forget
If awakened by the chorus
If aroused by canticle
Tis then can the awakened mind act
And only then can we bestir an entrusted intention
In slumber we retire the body
Cognition doth not always fade
In nightmare we struggle and worry
In vision we discern
Up to us how we choose
This lullaby now our muse
