Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

When I Dream, It Is My World, Then I Wake Up.

    When I dream, it is my world, then I wake up.

    Sometimes, Lord, I would like something to hold on to,
    yet that is impossible for all I have is this naked moment,
    then there is this instant, and now yet another one!


    When young, it was my world,
    now I am not sure what my world is anymore,
    for like sand in my hand, my days slip through,
    falling, where I wonder, all that sand I cannot grasp?

    When I dream, it is my world, then I wake up.

    Sometimes during the day I will wake up as well,
    out of the daze of just living, reacting,
    but in reality, just dreaming.

    In prayer, I awaken, this moment, so precious,
    it will only pass once by me,
    how often I waste this exquisite currency,
    yet Lord, whatever moment I am in,
    even once the sand has left my grasp,
    you are in all moments,
    in that is my hopeā€”Br.MD
