Palace of Dreams (Magic and Alchemy)


You have been building it
Brick by brick
Tile by tile
Room after room
even before you understood
the meaning of life. 
Every wish, desire, 
yearning, hope, prayer
stored into rooms
embellished with faith and love
The palace of dreams 
represent life in its full glory.

Today, you meet plenty of people
who sell you sugar-coated lies;
They brainwash you into 
being walking dead
They ridicule you for having
something sacred in your life;
Will you let them convince you
to abandon the palace of dreams
in exchange of acceptance?
Will you let them crush it
with the bulldozer of hollow logic
justifying the societal conventions?
Or will you fight for your
beautiful palace of dreams
till your last breath
so that you live every second 
with honesty, depth and mirth?
