The Real World Awaits You

A game is as real as a dream
They both exist in some way
Shoot someone or be shot
The real world will not change
Offline youíre not a Space Marine

RL has no reset button
And itís visibly less exciting
The Internets real, but itís not life
Outside that worlds confines
You canít log off in real life
Thereís no DEL button offline
If you only wish to believe the real
Then the other is a lie
When it happens in a digital land
Where developers can play God
Does sleep count? Is that the same?
As going into sleep mode?

Up against a simulation
Mimicking his playstyle
Also it may be meaningless
But itís something to do
Announce your hatred for a character
His feelings wonít be hurt!
