Dreams

Are you then,
My bulwark
Against reality?

Or a half-truth
I need to prove
In the light of the day

Or maybe, the reality that the light of day prevents you from realizing?

is there something called the universal truth that wud be true across race/creed/color/gender...? life is all abt trying to get the half-truths together n making it flutter... with the light n shadow, truth don change flavor, at least not for the soul inside... n therez nothing to prove at the end of the day if the mirror reflects back a conscientious 'you' :)
perception varies... people take turns in the musical chair... its always a new day.. with the old you, trying to turn the page over.. tides wash over ur words at nite and the slate is clean with the morning sun... and as they say justice is poetic :)

Hmm...good question. I haven't heard "bulwark' in a long time!

Vi said...

Essentially, a bulwark must not exist for true realization, yes?

@RTD2: Perhaps so!

@Der Bergwind: Per the Rigveda, there is a universal truth, 'Ekam Satyam', and in some sense I hope there is, for truth is certainty, and being.

@Jyothsna: Seems like I am throwing up one uncommon word a poem :-)

@Vi: I am saying the bulwark is the wall that seperates one world from the other. Who knows what is more 'true', that which you dream off, or that which you live through?

@Sparsh: Or as went the joke in college, sab Maaya ka moh hai :-)

depends on what you're talking about...

Parth said...

@Frissko: Three posts a month not enough for you? :-)

@Shreya: I am talking about how dreams can shore you from reality or inspire you to make them real

mystic rose said...

a veiled truth that needs to be rediscovered?

lovely the way you wrote it.

Radha said...

Or another life you live within your sub-conscious?

RS said...

Or perhaps the only truth there is...that dares to make an appearance only in the middle of nothingness, when time seems to float suspended...lest it be judged in the harshness of day or the cold indifference of the night...

Parth said...

@Mystic Rose: Thanks :-)

@Radha, RS: Very much an alternative life, an alternative truth. One truer than what we might think of as truth.
