Awake

Are there times when you get too overwhelmed with the wonderful things that are happening, 

You’d have to pinch yourself to check if you’re dreaming

Feel the pain from the pinch, but be glad to have felt it

Feel the relief that everything is real and true 

Then pray you’d stay wide-awake as everything unfolds ❤️

What if the world you’ve known

  all your life isn’t real?
And everything was just a scheme —
A movie-like sequence that keeps repeating —
A scene full of re-telling,
And runs through someone’s directing?
I ask you, would you live your life differently?
And pursue a new life intently?
How would you escape this reality,
If someone else holds the control key?
