I am ready for the long sleep. Tired. So very tired.

The Long Sleep

I am ready for the long sleep.

Tired. So very tired.

But what I want,

and what I have to do,

are different entirely.

It will come for me,

in due time.

For now, I am alive.

I have children,

and a wife.

Cats, dogs, and chickens.

Even a few frogs and fish.

My kingdom is small,

but it needs me all the same.

So I cannot sleep,

I have to be here,

no matter how tired I get.

I keep moving forward.

I mustn’t give in.

Tenacity becomes me.

Dug in for the cause.

It pulls me through.

I grow numb,

to the feeling,

of exhaustion.

My purpose, providing.

I keep it in my sights.

It’s not yet time to sleep.
