A Realist’s Nightmare

Is this the dream life?
You ponder all the time.
Is this the reality?
You want to see fantasy.

In life, you saw,
All the tested paths.
Yet when you sleep,
You see many possibilities

Standing firm on the ground,
Goals seem fulfilling,
Looking at the clouds,
You feel a bit empty.

Amidst all the distractions,
Striving to find hope,
Keeping the reality alive,
Against time and space.

What if the ideas,
You thought all your life,
You were quite sceptical
Is a possible reality?

A truth you refused to accept,
All the time to keep you safe,
When you’re forced to admit,
What are you, my realist?
