My Reality

by James A Holt

Step away from this mundane dream,
Step into my reality.

Forget about driving cars,
Try riding a griffon.

Guns are too easy to use,
Live or die by the sword.

Who cares about switching on a light,
Cast a spell to illuminate a room.

Wrestling an alligator to impress the girls?
Try slaying a dragon.

Take a leap of faith
Fly into your dreams.


Author's Note: While I find this poem to be very weak, it's still a good start. Let me know if there should be something more in there.

Love the idea that your reality really is the biggest dream and that the dream actually is reality itself. I think this is a good start indeed.
