Nothing but a fool

You live your life in a state of shrugs
One more problem, one more shrug
You never create your own circumstances
but instead are ruled by circumstances
You never take a chance
but let everything happen by chance
Your life has become nothing but a series
of chances, coincidences and circumstances
You have become nothing but a fool.


Note:This was written in a dream. In my dream, I wrote this and read it out loud for a friend of mine. Anyway, I woke up and I actually remembered it. Yes, yes, even in my dreams, I am writing. Pity I can't remember everything I wrote in that great novel that won so many prizes!

It is good that you can tap into your creativity even while you sleep. Sleep is indeed a prerequisite for creativity.

As for the novel. Next time you sleep hold your paper and pencil. If people can sleep eat, sleep walk, even sleep shag, you should be able to sleep write ke.

Thanks for the words and making me smile. But you don't fool me. I know at least one girl from Effurun that can shame all those sabi-sabis from anywhere. Her name is Waffy, perhaps you have met her :-)

LOL...Hope you sleep again and remember the rest of the words to the novel. But its great that you wrote the poem down when you woke up. A cool poem too. Hmm...a Sometimes I have very vivid dreams like that and I just toss 'em after telling someone.
