Mankind in dreamland by s.zaynab.kamoonpuri

Pestered and pursued  
by unknown foes  
A topsyturvy land  
where snakes can have horns  
and cows can have fangs.  
Night'mares' where the day's stallions  
make mountains out of molehills  

 

 

A chance to witness greek mythology-like creatures for real  
For dreamland tis a place for the unreal and surreal.  

Those hair-raising scary frightening dreams  
beset with horrified silent screams!  

 

We do try to interrupt nightmares, pinching ourselves  
With relief wake up to see there aren't any horrid elves.  
We also try to interpret dreams filled with mystery  
But gifted dream interpreters like prophet Joseph  
Are now part of biblical human history  

 

 

All in all, dreamland's fascination  
for extra-ordinary exaggeration  
and tall-tale imagination  

Where myth and legend come to life  
An amalgam of fiction or real strife  

Where assorted monsters of the mind  
reign supreme in that REM sleep of our kind.  

 

 

Yet on the other hand the wishful, wistful sweet sweet dreams  
where fantasies form mirages bordered by fanciful seams.  

Where castles in the air that humans build, float gently down to earth  
only to shoot back up unto nowhere from the awakened one's berth.  

In dreamland a pauper girl can be a princess or fairy fair  
for daydreams extend into the night and linger on there.  

 

 

A quote I took to heart and it to console all and sundry  
'that if your sweet dreams don't come true, don't you fret  
for atleast your nightmares didn't come true either,  
so just heave a sigh, by and by.  

Every night let us all just ascend and fly to escape  
And lo behold the extraordinary world of Dreamscape.

Our world
