Everything In Life

Is everything in life
real or is reality
nothing but a

Realism is
what we all
want and seek.

What is reality
but a hologram
that doctors have
placed in our heads?

If you go out with
your family are they
really there?
The marriage of a
man and a woman,
the love and support
of a family member,
the unconditional love of
a new born baby.

I'm sure that life is
real every day
we are not robots
even though
we recharge
ourselves every

So we can be
somewhat charged
or fully charged
in the morning.

I accidentally clicked on this one and I was pleasantly surprised to find your musings on reality. It reminded me of a recent article I read, it concerned the fact that some believe we live in a simulation.

Life and it's meaning? I think we all think about it in differing degrees. You've got me thinking now.

Thought provoking poetry I really enjoyed!!
