The closer one looks

Our dreams disturb us because 
they refuse to pander to our fondest notions of ourselves.  
The closer one looks, the more they seem to
 insist upon a challenging proposition:
 You must live truthfully.  Right now.  And always. 
 Few forces in life present, with an equal sense of inevitability, 
the bare-knuckle facts of who we are, 
and the demands of what we might become.
