This Lullaby Now Our Muse

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
