Every night our dreams show us how it is in our life,
As if to say, “This is how it is–what are you going to do about it?”
Every night, the same question:
“This is how it is.
What are you going to do about it?”
We grow up
By facing up to how it is with our life,
And doing what needs to be done about it.
Every night we get a mirror:
“This is how it is in your life.”
And a question:
“What are you going to do about it?”
Every day, we get another opportunity
To look in the mirror,
And work out our answer to the question.
