A Somnambulist’s World

Every one of us on earth
Is sleepwalking —

This earth is
A somnambulist’s world
Everything we do is
In woken slumber

Unaware of all
Else we do
For there is some
Unkonwn force behind the stimulus
Who takes delight
In every move of ours
That it itself directs

We retire to our real world
Only when we are woken
Everyone of us wakes
When kindled by the truthfire
When the real sun rises
Beyond all horizons.
