What is it to sleep?..
Not just to close ones eyes in darkness but to be completely at rest?
For my heart to know a peace the waking world forever denies me?
To let my mind take sanctuary in a virtual hibernation,
shielded from the growing stress that invades deep into my subconscious thoughts,
turning my dreams into hideous nightmares!
What is it to wake?..
Not simply to rise but to shine with a restless energy ready for a new day?
To feel refreshed and invigorated in such ways that enrich my soul?
To apply myself with purpose towards my hopes and ambitions?
Where visions of endless possibility create a drive within,
marching me on toward a much brighter future...
