Last night was one of those nights
where my mind would not shut
off to rest and my brain kept going 
around and around in loops

I tried deep breathing and methodically
relaxing my body, but my tense muscles
refused to relax and my mind kept going 
full speed ahead

When morning came, I did not feel rested
I felt like I had wrestled someone much 
stronger than me all night and my mind was
so overworked, that even making coffee was hard

The day has been never ending because I am
so exhaused, is 3pm too early to go to bed?
I refuse to take a nap because I know that
will make tonight even harder, so I keep moving

Hopefully, after so little rest last night, 
my body will allow itself to rest
and rejuvinate tonight, I hope so
because I am very tired!
