I didn’t

see this life lesson coming as I lay awake in  my bed at 3 in the morning.

Every room in my house quiet as everyone sleeps so peacefully.

Except for me, whose wide awake with so much to say.

Yet, craving to go back to sleep .

But no matter how many times I try to drift back to sleep.

Nothing happens and soon my eyes are open and I’m staring into the darkness.

So I just decided to write and here I am writing.

With tiredness coming quick to my eyes I breathe a sigh of relief as I drift back to sleep again.
