A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

06 February 2014

What do you dream about when you're awake

If you peer

Under dreams of grandeur

A beautiful home filled with children

Passionate love with a compassionate husband

Days spent in a pleasant job

Time augmented with art


There you find reality

Bitterly glaring back

A cramped apartment shackled with debt

Settled with an imperfect match

Rushing through meaningless labor

To go home, to chores and exhaustion


We put our noses to the grindstone

In our sleepy nine to fives

Searching for the places of our hopes

The man, the children, the job

But all in vain for we are working  still
