Continuing the #NaPoWriMo festivities!
Today’s prompt: “What ideas and feelings keep you up at night? What’s it like when you have to wake up in the morning on a night you can’t sleep?
These thoughts keep me awake as they buzz about my head
Questioning, turning, wondering if my dreams are dead
Is there more, I want to know, than I’ve been banking for
Is my time and money useless, simply rusting on the floor?
Am I burying my talent before it has a chance to bloom
Is there more I should be doing than just laying in this room
At what point is my exhaustion both well-earned and well-deserved?
At what point am I just lazy and avoiding what’s perturbed?
Am I wasting time with questions as I ponder and remind
Or do my thoughts abate decisions that would prove far less than kind
Will a future unearth before me, or do I have to go and look
Should I sing or should I paint, should I teach or write a book?
I know a share of trades, but a master I am none
Is that because I need some time, or is my chance already done
I know my purpose overall but it views like a fuzzy line
I can’t keep being afraid because it’s wasting all my time
Through it all I keep on thinking about the hours wasted by
I don’t function well on lack of sleep, I need a heaping of shut-eye
I’ll awaken the next morning: yawning, rubbing at my eye
I don’t count minutes as I toss, so I can’t tell the time goodbye
