Extremely Tired But Not Dead

Updated on July 23, 2012

When The End Is Far Far Away

My body can't take it

No the truth is it can and will

When we push beyond our own limitations

My mind draws a blank

No the truth is it draws in three d and in every color imaginable

I worked all day and my mind travels as if I was a nomad

Wandering from place to place

Even though my body has worked the same job and work has become an exstension of me

I have a beautiful simple home that I am so comfortable and content with

Where does the problem lie

In my mind that wants so much more

Like Louis and Clark always exploring and looking for adventure

To find a thrill beyond the next hill

To be bewildered and enchanted like it is my right

When other people rest their head

My mind flutters like a butterfly that never stops flapping its wings

Never resting to long in one place

Finding each new spot better than the one before

Each person I meet makes my life complete

As I doze off to sleep dropping my head between my shoulders

My teeth crinching for the upteenth time

Now it is off to bed and I wonder what my thoughts will uncover

      Hee hee . Oh You are so funny. I´m hopeless at going to bed when I. should......... but you re right. We need our rest, don´t know why my body fights agianst bedtime. I must just answer a few more comments, or I must scribble the main part of a hub , because in the morning I will have forgotten it..........Then, why is it when morning comes, I hate having to get up.????

      Loved your hub, anyway.

      Dim Flaxenwick I wrote this when my eyes were tired and all my body wanted to do is sleep.I tried to experiment and see how long I could go without crashing.The idea was to find inspiration when we are dead tired and to pooped to pop.I remember that old expression in my head.Now well rested and I revised some of my lines to make more sense.Hope all is well and when you are tired you go to bed like any smart person would do.(lol)
