Reality is perception

What is real?

He stood trembling like a reed in the wind

It felt so real, too real, was it real?

It felt real

It looked real

It appeared real

What is real?

As he stood atop the mountain a plane flew within reach

He ducked

He looked down, it appeared endless

Where did it end?

Where was the green covered ground?

What is real?

Now standing on a 23ft cliff his legs stabalized

Another bird flew bye and he ducked again

He looked down at the water

What is real?

His original perception was a false reality

His original perception was fear

Once he overcame false reality, he only percieved what was real 

Once fear is overcome, he becomes invulnerable...he jumps!

What is fear?
