Sleep


I did not want to wake up today morning…
Feeling suddenly rebellious…
Wanting to throw away the peace of known restlessness
The comfort of accustomed hurry…

Yet there was no time for such wishes…
A lot had to be done and
I was stuck in a life…
I wondered where was I free…

Time refused to acknowledge my presence…
Marching ahead as obstinate as ever…
Trampling me like many others before me…
Who dared assume it could dictate him

Yet I did not want to wake up today morning
I wanted to laze and feel like the master of my own fate
In the deliberate extra minutes in bed...
Or maybe...I never wanted to wake up...

Decent set of verses....speaking about the tyranny of time...and yet our comfortable adjustment to it shows just how used to we are to the monotony of the daily breathless schedules of life...it comes from a soul who wishes to take a step out of the way too familiar paths...and defy the control of time on his life....They're good.....your words...thoughtful...keep writing
