To sleep, perchance to dream.
Screw dreaming, I just want sleep.
Every night I toss and turn.
My eyes close, but my brain keeps running.
Thoughts and worries race through my mind.
My body won’t cooperate either;
Relaxation just doesn’t happen.
I turn over for the hundredth time,
Breathe deeply, try to settle down,
But sleep still doesn’t come.
I stay in bed and try to rest;
Anything’s better than nothing.
Then my alarm goes off; it’s morning
Another sleepless night is done.
