Sleep

Asleep when asleep is to be awake,
asleep when awake is to be asleep,
body falls asleep, real dreams do wake,
body awake, false daydreams awake sleep.

Dream of sleep is window to the vast mind,
daydream of sleep is mindless past echo,
night dreams awake potential unconfined,
daydreams sleep in repetitions fallow.

A day awake alive in a night dream
is to wake to a life’s full potential,
A day asleep awake in a daydream
is to sleep awake to death’s empty whorl.

What is down is up, what is up is down,
understand this as enlightenment’s crown.
