I walk, I talk, I live
And yet, I’m sleeping
The real me, sleeps under a cover of darkness
My life is a dream;
short glimpses of reality
I remember my dreams
They shock me.
How can I be so different?
How can I be so selfish?
In my dreams I am self-centered
Focused on my pain, my regret
There is so much to gain from others
When I’m me I’m kind and loving
Joyful and happy
Easy to please and a pleasure to be around
But the dream takes over
It’s the face of a black dog
How many people have I pushed away?
How would they know it’s my nightmare?
Not me that they see and speak to?
I want to awake from this dream
Before life passes me by and I lose
Awake, speak the truth; be true to myself
Think before speaking
Speak with love
I want to be proud of myself
When I’m sleeping, wake me up
