"It's time to nut up, or shut up." - Woodey Harrelson "Zombieland"

I open my eyes
In a valley of smoke
It blows in my face
But I do not choke.
What is this world
Where pain is not felt?
Where happiness expands
And worries melt?
Why can’t I find it
When I am awake?
Why must I sleep
Why must I wait?
But this place is not how it seems,
What is this place, I call my Dreams?

While studying Langston Hughes in Language Arts, we had an assignment to read his dream poems. Then, we had to make one of our own. It's not my best, but I love the message.
