That was just a dream


I wish I closed my eyes a little longer just to dream, to dive into the fantasies of subjective realities hiding under the subconscious. It scares me to death; what I see and I wake up to reality. I tell myself “that was just a dream”.

Maybe reality is a dream and what I dream, a reality. More often than not, I dream of waking up only to realise “that was just a dream”. Sometimes I wonder how I have gotten this far.

Now I don’t know what a dream is.

        A place where ppl are safe, sound, happy and contented. I don’t wish for a place to be so good that it doesn’t exist but I wish for a place where things are not as what they are around us(like the violence and all)🥺.

            Ikr😶😢. If we all work for it, maybe we can turn the dream to reality. It will take time but results might be fruitful!!!
