SLEEP, Writing 101, Poetry: The Commons

  SLEEP     (Day 3)

No thoughts of past, present and future
Sleep like a baby.
Thoughts of play, friends and school
Sleep like a child.
Thoughts of peers and wants and desires
Sleep like a youth.
Thoughts of work and money and family
Sleep like a person with added responsibilities,
Thoughts of dreams achieved and lost
Sleep like a middle aged person.
Thoughts of health, physical and mental
Sleep like a person entering old age.
Thoughts of the last, final sleep
Sleep like a person with only the future.
