Waking Up Is Not Hard To Do It Is Next To Impossible

Updated on June 18, 2013

All I Want To Do Is Sleep

My body is wiped out

I just want to stay in bed

Curl up in a warm blanket and hide my head

Let the world go on without me

I love what I am doing and there is nothing nicer than sleeping

I go to a land where anything can and will happen

Where right is easy and wrong is no where to be found

When people try their personal best because it feels so good

Other people laugh all day and have no reason to stop

Beautiful flowers and so many reminders of nature surround us

Animals roam free

People work helping each other out of sincerity

Life is filled with new challanges and commitment to do better

There is no concept of time and sharing is just understood

Then a noise in a distance pulls my world away

I see the world shrinking right before my eyes

The noise becomes louder and louder

It becomes so annoying and now old fears and regrets become known

I hear the sound it is my alarm clock and I have to get up

All my dreams and thoughts soon are pushed to the back burner

I hear my phone ring and it's my work

Where are you ?

I was in a world you wouldn't understand

I am just getting up and I must of over slept

With the distance I have to travel and by the time I get dressed it will be about noon time when I get there

O.k. we need you

We are short handed and are busy

Hurry and get here as soon as you can

My perfect world has vanished

It has crashed and burst into flames

Life is what we make it to be

Until we find ways to change it

I would love to stay home and write

But I have to go earn my living else where

I work in a kitchen and cook for a living

I serve food for the hungry

Not the poor

Not the lonely and sad

Just people without names and blank faces

Until my life changes this is where my future lies

Not dreaming of a land where men and woman can fly without wings

In their minds with words and beautiful thoughts we think

Shared by all with just one blink

      I was fondly looking at my bed right after I read this poem. It definitely made me long for it and also the comfort it provides! Vivid details, voting up and sharing!

      kj force You are right again.It's like putting a fresh coat of paint on an old house.Soon it looks like new and even though we know what it was just hours before.Changing our day to a better one will always be my way of making it a good day.So nice to see you.How are the exercises going in the pool?In spirit I am watching you pool side with a drink in my hand with a little unbrella and a piece of pineapple sticking out.So no slacking.Have a wonderful night.

      DREAM ON...This my friend is why we write..for moments just like this..but..all are not so lucky, for when they awake, the dream is not even a memory..let alone a poem to be shared with the world...and the other thing is when your day gets ugly, you can mentally escape back to your dream and others are not even aware..this is how WE cope with the " quirks" handed to us in our world...great job..have a wonderful week-end..we dropped 30 degrees in 24 hours..cold..cold..but welcomed and needed rain...

      Ah...dreams can be so lovely. I liked the way you described yours. Too bad our days cannot always be as lovely as our dreams. Voted up. Wishing you the best life has to offer even when you are not dreaming. :)

      lovedoctor926 Work and sleep keep life in balance.I love both but when I can I rather do extra sleep than extra work.Thanx so much for sharing.

      Sleep is delightful until you're suddenly awoken by strange noises and then once you're awoken, it's hard to go back to sleep because you start worrying about the realities of life. And having to wake up early is a drag, you would much rather stay in bed resting, but you have no choice because if you don't work, then you don't have money and if you don't have money, you can't pay your bills or feed your family.
