Quest

Will you join me on this quest-
this lifelong quest to be real?

First there’s prayer-
they teach you ritual words
and say you can shape things
like life with them.

Then spells come to you-
you cross your fingers
and repeat your wish three times
and maybe sometimes you get a bike.

Finally, there’s meditation-
sitting in silence for hours
you finally know all efforts are like
and you were real all along.
