Illusion

On a molten ball encased in rock

Then clothed with land and sea

Humanity lives its daily life

Obliviously

Accepting blue as their roof above

And blind to the realms beyond

The people hurry to fill their days

Determinedly

Encountering death with grief and shock

They confront reality

Their dream of immortality rocked

Momentarily

But how to live with the naked truth

Without overwhelming fear?

The answer lies in deluding oneself

Continually
