i know what it's like
to feel as if sleep
will rob you of the remembrance
of your self image
of your hard-earned dignity and poise.
to think that while you wake,
the moment you've been waiting for
will pass you as you're half-dreaming
or hit you in the face
as soon as your eyes part open
but rest, beloved.
staying up will only keep you bound
to circular thoughts.
their rhythm will not console you
as you believe
it will drive you mad.
so instead of continuing
to riddle yourself with the specifics
of the possibilities of the day,
lay your mind down with your body,
because tomorrow will lend itself to you
when it is now.
