You ever try to sleep,
But end up dreaming?
An attempt to take a break from life
Where instead you find another meaning?
People tell me I look tired
And they’re usually right.
It feels like a waste of time
Just breathing through the night
Yet somehow our bodies demand it
Just a little break from the struggle
Of playing our games in the day
In fear we might stumble
We live this life on razor’s edge
So much so we value unconciousness
Time wasted in blanket’s hug
Can you believe that preposterousness?
Should it not be a bit different?
Sleep oughta be an inconvenient chore
A necessary skip in time
We’re just made to endure
Yet a temporary death in our slumber
Instead brings reprieve to our pain
We’re lions tamed to house cats
Look in the mirror and notice your mane
When it’s time to sleep
Do it because you must
Don’t resign to being a machine
Just enjoying your own rust
You ever try to dream;
Just to end up asleep?
