‘Dual lives’

Every day delivers challenges, 
Each night brings new dreams. 
Which of them is true ‘reality’?
Is ‘awake’ even what it seems?

Perhaps as we sleep at night; 
we choose to live another life.
One free of moral restraints.
More power, less complaints.

In a realm of dreaming minds
It’s up to us to save mankind. 
We fight evil in a dozen wars.
For a win, we lose two more.

As a ‘hero’, trapped in space.
Unable to run, glued in place.
Touring halls that never end.
Facing foes we must defend.

I believe with ordinary souls,
that being awake takes a toll.
In a fantasy, the reality pales.
Only time levels these scales.
