Dawn is a few hours away

Yet I am not sleeping

My mind is racing

My heart beats rapidly in my chest

I know I need to rest

A new day is dawning

But my mind won’t stop

My emotions won’t be calmed

I replay my yesterday

Question decisions I’ve made

Worry how I will handle what is to come

I yearn for things I have yet to attain

I pray for strength and knowledge

I close my eyes in an attempt to dream

To escape today and journey into tomorrow

In hope that I will awake with a sense of peace

That with sleep I will gain strength and resolve

To conquer a new day and accept all

That tomorrow puts before me

And that tomorrow night

Sleep comes quickly

Before

Dawn is a few hours away
