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
