I Need Sleep


Another restless night with little sleep.
I stare into the dark, but do not weep.
Alone, an empty room, a starless sky,
A world devoid of decency, just my
Growing fear that all of us will reap

This harvest. As the horrors pile deep,
The cost is great. Resistance isn’t cheap.
These thoughts and more are all that occupy
Another restless night.

How can we know what promises we’ll keep,
When truth bleeds out, and lies, relentless, creep
Into good minds that can’t identify
What’s right from wrong? How can we justify
The urge to close our eyes, remain asleep?
Another restless night.
