I lay in bed, my eyes are red. Another sleepless night, no rest in sight. My mind is rattling like a toy, I just want some joy.

I toss and turn, but my body burns. Another sleepless night, again I must fight.

My body is weak, no sleep for a week. I close my eyes, and my head just cries.  What do I do? I have no clue. It’s 2 o’clock and my head just rocks.

I release a cry, out comes a big sigh. The weight lifts, it feels like a gift. The peace has come, not all but some.

It’s ok to cry, show your emotion, at least try. Don’t hold it in, for if you do then it will win. Release the pain, for you have all to gain!
