Sleep comes quick as the day’s activities wear me down,

I’m not so sure where I am, where now do I stand in time.

Little control now in my own world as I am at the mercy of it all,

Worry strikes me down hard as my tomorrow seems a bit lost.

I awake in the night from the unwanted visions of my daily thoughts,

Decisions are not mine, waiting for so long to get back what was mine.

Everything has changed in a period of shortness, where am I to be,

I know from where it is I sit but for how long shall this man keep his spot.?

Through pain and a stab in the back, my purpose appears taken from me,

I awake in the night wondering and waiting for the morning light,

There’s no getting what I had back, only need pieces of who I use to be.
