The Dreamer's Question
|The Dreamer's Question|
11/26/08 at 11:51 PM by Jonathan Bautts
|To deny its very state of vivacity|
Or to cling to the hope found in a reverie.
To sketch with but the dullest of hues
Or paint with a palette of unconstraint.
To play it safe with anodyne hands
Or risk the blistering heat exposed.
To view the glass as half-empty
Or perceive it as something else entirely.
To scrutinize things in black and white
Or envelop them in a field of color.
To become dissuaded by arduous obstacles
Or be challenged by unique opportunities.
To surrender to the confines of reality
Or envision life in unobstructed glory.
Which perspective shall I choose—
That is the dreamer’s question.
