No More Sleep

Within the sanctuary walls
the people were sleeping soundly.
And every time the sun did fall
No more worries in their county.

Until one day
the peace had broke,
and the people
were awoken.

Now all their dreams
were distant gleams
of a time that
was once hopeful.



It’s time I put my foot down.

I’ve been drowning in this sorrow,

And I’m finished being letdown.

Hopefully, starting tomorrow

I can move past all of this.

But knowing who I am

I’ll never know true bliss.

I’ll be damned

If I ever move on.
