Which One Would You Choose ?

Updated on November 26, 2013

If Only I Could Open My Eyes

If only I could close my eyes

You wouldn't say that if you were in my position

Trying to find a little rest

Live life and stick it out

My arms crossed and my head tucked

I nod off in a corner

Don't do it

It is so easy

It will become a habit

Open a book and read about exciting things and places

All my eyes see is a blurr

Look out the window

The people

All the activity

The fast moving cars whizzing by

Repetition of the same old thing

Day after day

I am fading fast

Again my eyes close

This time I drool unexpectedly

There is so much to see and do

Letting all my thoughts turn to peace and quiet

Stretch and move your legs

Cover my eyes in the darkness looking for shade

So many people are watching you

So let them

There is no better time

Rub your head get up

Wake up

I feel my spirit

I don't want to wait

I am losing control

There is no better time than now

It's all in my head

Come,see and feel

Which one is real ?

      I keep dreaming of the day when I could just relax and not do a thing beyond letting my inspiration renew itself and gathering up material I can use etc. But no matter how tired I get that day never comes because my mind is so full of all of my responsibilities.....
