I AWAKE IN THE NIGHT
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.
