I'll Sleep Again

I woke up in a dim room

While the light outside was hot

And blaring—

A sweet feeling

Until I realized that the day had

Mostly been slept away, but

Maybe that is a message

Being sent—

Telling me to put myself

First and rest, to stop worrying

About what doesn't define me

In the time where I am me and

Me alone. 

So I'll sleep again,

And let the day drift by. 

There will be others and time spent

Well with myself is not wasted.
