What is Real Anyways?

Oh child,

When I look at you,

I see this trusting look in your eyes,

How you believe someone will catch you

When you fall

 

Oh child,

When I hear you play your guitar,

I can see your ambition 

Your ambition to be just in the now

Live the moment

No need to plan

 

I see it from afar

It is not my world

My world is full of commitments

Of deadlines

Of requirements and obstacles

 

Who’s right? 

Who’s wrong?

And who’s competent to judge?

 

I see my world creeping up from behind

Seizing you

Stealing your innocence

Cracking your confidence

Or was it just naiveté anyways?

 

These worlds make my head dizzy

My heart heavy

Am I bringing you closer to reality?

Or further from creativity?

Spoiling or strengthening you?

 

Who’s right? 

Who’s wrong?

And who’s competent to judge?

 

(Painting: Rene Magritte)
