Soft voices drift through the house.

Everyone should  be asleep, but isn't.

Wind blows, accompanied by giggling.

I roll over in my bed.

 

Everyone should be asleep, but isn't.

Tomorrow, we have to go to school.

I roll over in my bed.

Nights aren't long enough.

 

Tomorrow, we have to go to school.

Waking up early; classes all day.

Nights aren't long enough.

Homework is left unfinished

 

Waking up early; classes all day.

Alarm clocks end the only rest we get.

Homework is left unfinished.

Sleep or work, one is sacrificed.
