The Dance Between Truth And Fantasy

We come across many folk in life
each person has a soul and owner
but then these owners don't always converse
bunch of lonely souls trying hard to survive

These pitiful souls do lead a life
looking tough always on the face outside
but walk with knife stuck in their chest
and wear their pride like the batman's vest

I was once told a well-known dance
it moves between the truth and fantasy
when joining the dance please do it correctly
or be lost forever in that delusional land

A person’s mind is a precious thing
a massive layer of joy and agony
in time the mind will have to decide
to stay in dance or bid goodbye

    “And wear their pride like a batsman’s vest”…. this keeps the owners out of touch with reality, along with the world outside.

    It’s so easy to get caught between truth and fantasy and so difficult to move away from it. An amazing and mind-stirring piece. Thank you so much for joining in.
