As Above: Understanding Poetry

As Above
I dreamt the world was sleeping
And awoke to find it true
Reality is worn like a straight jacket
until they awake and see You

I swam in a summer ocean
and a current ripped me away
Paddling against the raw power
You lifted me up to live another day

The convict, the jailer, the judge
The ocean, the dreamer, and me
All are drenched in your essence
Born blind of your divinity

I sang a song of eternal hope
I smiled at a mirror of love
This world is a film negative
And as below, so above

Whether our current existence is reality is an intriguing idea. I like to think that when we are dreaming, that is our reality. When we wake up, we recognize that indeed, we were dreaming and our daily lives become our new reality. When we die, will we experience the same awakening?  Will we say, “Ah, yes. Now I see. My time on earth was just a dream, and my nightly somber was just a dream within a dream.”

What do you think? I’d love to hear from you.

So I’ve decided to try my hand in actually writing a few posts about some of the theoretical stuff. I hope you enjoy it! Also, I am legally bound to tell you that there may be some spoilers in this review, mainly in the examples I’ll be listing below. Most of them are pretty famous movies, so hopefully you’ve seen them. Either case, read at your own risk! 🙂

I actually didn’t have to think hard about what I was planning to write. Its no secret that, for me, the villain is one of the essential tools to making a movie fantastic, and I’d dare say that a lot of the…
