dreams are what you wake up from,
but if you're sober in the middle of your dreams,
are dreams dreams? or is it reality?


"Dreams are what you wake up from", by Raymond Carver.
"Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane." Red to Andy in Shawshank Redemption.

what draws the line between dreams and reality? i used to have a dream within a dream. i woke up from that dream, only to realise that i was still dreaming. it's a strange experience for me definitely. but even in reality, we often know not how to segregate dreams from reality. how different are dreams from expectations? and what is hope then? how often have we lived in dreams of reality, only to be betrayed by fleeting dreams; dreams that we have to wake up from? how often then, do we 'wake up' and realised that what we've been doing so far was supposed to be a 'dream'; and that we have rouse ourselves from the slumber, to move on, to carry on with the relentless cycle that we call life?

hope brings us forth, but wisdom we need, to wake up from some dreams.
