Waking to Wake Up

Metro-Detroit 210
United States

Awake in a place I don’t want to be

Surrounded by friends and family

Endangered by negativity

I try to protect my allies

I’m too late

Couldn’t stop

Such a horrible fate

Angry with myself

The grime chases me

I face more monsters

Continuously causing calamities

I see a tremendous masked man

Shotgun of fire in hand

Terrorized my closest

A backfire occurs

This engulfed fiend, now hopeless

I continue dashing to hope

Until I see a cascading stream

I try to escape from the grime

By washing myself with self-perceived purity

I wake up to a dream

Jumped out of bed

Exposed by the naked truth

To my best friends

A fool I feel

To have made such hurdles

In a nightmare unfulfilled

Waking to wake up

Trapped between nightmares and dreams

I remain lucid

Stranded in reimagined catastrophes
