the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 114
Day Break Beckons

I cannot stay awake

past the tenth hour or eleventh

it messes up my clock

alarm set before seven

it holds me back from helping

what selfishness exudes

and when i lay awake at six

sleep so oft eludes

once darkness falls and comes in

and a slumber rest calls

while the night is still young

i desert the halls

buried in books and texts

meetings, appointments and play

my eyelids drooping and i know

this is the end of my day

just before the first light

when the sky has yet been torn

and a calm darkened blanket

rests lightly on the breaking dawn

my heart would wake so slowly

and i would wish to lay down longer

but nothing beats adrenaline

the anxiety couldnít be stronger

i already had eight hours

which is just a dream to every other

but why do i need so much

i canít sleep when itís any brighter

morning comes and shines through

shall it be a beautiful day

only if i remember

to read what God has to say
