Poem Sleep

Poem Sleep



I was sleeping
I was dreaming
It was a good rest
...and the dreams were a good set


When I am asleep
please do not disturb me
Sleeping is a transition in life
...that fuels the body for the next strife


To sleep is to be at peace
to awake is to be at war
so, why doesn't the world sleep more?


To sleep is to be still
to awake is to be un-chilled
The world needs a rest
...from the troubles that beset


Why can't we sleep more?
Instead of fighting around the clock wars
Do not worry about the enemy
sleep too, is their remedy!
