The nightmares are not hiding behind the closed eyelids
They are there out in the open, wearing the garb of daymayers
We think that things we fear are those which we imagine and not see
But what is the most frightening aspect is that we don’t recognize
The dangers which are starting us in the face right in front of us
( I have written this because of the enormity of the climate change which is gradually destroying our environment and we have collectively closed our eyes and conscious towards it)
“There are many who don’t wish to sleep for fear of nightmares. Sadly, there are many who don’t wish to wake for the same fear.”
― Dandelions: The Disappearance of Annabelle Fancher
