How am I to know?

How am I to know

if this is real

or just a dream

a dream of “reality”

of the shared unconscious

perhaps all created by my mind

a world chock full of MY


of MY


Am I waking?

Am I awake?

or am I peacefully sleeping with anxiety?

A paradox so it may seem

but anxiety about what happens next

never really knowing how the story will go

or what will be around the inevitable corner

it all leaves me on edge

even in meditation

I still want to know…

and now…?
