About "night Owls"

A clock will strike Mid-night.

Most will sleep with their heads in their pillows,

and their minds at rest.

Some of us

can't sleep.

We stay up most the night

only to see light

without peace.

Some of us

do not sleep because of what might lurk

in the corrners of our dreams.

We try to smile

or try to hide the dark circles

under our eyes,

but sometimes time

dosen't work on our side.

Doctors give us medicine

to help us sleep.

They say your body needs it.

But they did not stop to think

that dreams can make our bodies restless.

Our mids are always working,

they are never turned off.

So when we sleep only some parts of our mind

is taking a break.

So we night "owls"

aren't that diffrent from those who sleep.

We just have our eyes open.

But do not call us crazy

because you do not have dreams and fears

like we do most nights.
