A Night’s Slumber 

Tossing and turning.

Becomes a nightly routine when you’re forcefully trying to close your eyes to escape today and dream of hope for tomorrow.

Kicking your feet, slamming your hand as you yell out why!

When does peace settle within your thoughts?

I can only wonder as I lay hopeless, as if I’m waiting for the perfect moment.

To awake from a mild slumber, drop to my knees and pray for the 30th time in 24 hours. 

Do you hear me? It’s me again.

I just want to sleep. 

I just want to be free from myself.
