Sitting at my computer screen fidgeting with my lettering and not a word can come out except- button mumbled questionings
Checking the clock and it appears it’s 3 am again
Another, night wasted
Or, another day finished
Late night, sleep tight
But I don’t wanna sleep because I still have so much to do
Yet I wanna stay awake to keep the exhaustion at bay but my session expired and I’m exceptionally tired and everything’s still past due.
My mind feeling like it’s running one-hundred to one, moving at a higher rate than engines go
hot yet cold
in my face
keeping me up everyday as the day goes.
Really a nights rest is all I need. Alarm rings
Rise and shine, say hello to the lady bugs flying and the dead leaves lying would you look at the time another assignment’s missing.
To the long day over and over again listlessly it’s the same thing everyday.
Sitting in front of that same blank computer screen each and everyday.
No need to fray it can’t be everyday,
it has to end someday
I might as well work now
it may suffice
Check my phone once, twice, three times, four
Would you look at that forty assignments upmaybe moremore.
No! I implore!
I implore you to try each an everyday I understand the struggle
And the anxiety you keep at bay
Just push a little farther and you’ll see
Hang there in a little longer and your restless nights will soon be
