Poetry By: Christian Taylor

A poem about trying to find a goodnight sleep, but sleep is fleeting.

Sleep is much needed
A restless mind refuses to rest
Too much thought of tomorrow's trials
Eyes feel light, when they should be heavy
Knowing to be up before the sun rises
Doesn't faze the restless mind
Tomorrow brings nothing, but dread
Knowing the mind wants sleep
When I'm supposed to be wide awake
Yawning will be constant
As if boredom is the problem
Oh how I wish I could dream of a story
Or an adventure
Endless possibilities when one's asleep
Definite reality is a mind well rested
Prepared to challenge any trails that charge its way
Until then, continued fighting with mind and body
A constant battle without end
For just a restful night sleep
Will sleeplessness ever take a vacation
