61 (who?)
Is this the real world we see?
Or is it just an illusion of reality?
Will death be the thing to set us free?
Or is that just a weird mentality?

Is life just an illusion?
Do we perhaps preserve things differently?
And is this all just a big delusion?

We want the people to think free
But can they be free if they need to follow the rules?
Can they break free,
Without being branded as fools?

If we want to know more
And learn the real truth
We have to venture in the unknown more

A wise man doesn't take the road everybody sees
A wise man travels off the road and leaves a track
I needed to get my mind of things
I visited my grandmother today, she's dying.
Doctor said that she might not make it to tomorrow...

Anyways I'm here to get my mind of that and that's basically why I wrote this.

Life is just an illusion I think.
Maybe the life we live is a dream, and what we think is a dream is the reality.
We can't be sure before we try to discover it.
Those we dare to might be branded a fool or outcast, but they may discover something of the utmost importance.

Please leave feedback so I can improve in the comments.

The rhymes are very nicely done, and the poem as a whole is very well-written. The message is clear for all to read, definitely.
