I spend my nights lying awake,
I don’t sleep even during the day.
Because sleep is a luxury I can’t afford.
Even a tiring day doesn’t get this reward.
What keeps me up at day’s end?
Insomnia, my dear old friend.
I toss and turn all night long,
Wondering what could be wrong,
Not just with me and my sleep,
But the world’s issues that weep.
Yes, night is when I am most awake,
So I try to find solutions for everyone’s mistakes.
The days are not blessed either,
Aimlessly I wander to deliver.
Have to get some work done now,
If only my tired brain would allow.
I steal some restless naps in between
But I am still as tired as I have always been.
I don’t fight him anymore,
I have bid sleep adios.
I don’t even try to get into bed,
I know my sleep is long dead.
Now I stay up all night and all day,
Insomnia commands and I obey.
