tired, too-tired


Insomnia always happens when I get stressed
or depressed
or just sad

There is so much on my plate
on my mind
I need to discover how to wash the plate
how to reclaim myself
some control

This does not mean that I need
or want
to disconnect myself
from the people in my life
to escape completely

That used to be my wish
long ago

Now I know
that I need to go on
I need to be me
I need to know who I am
and where I stand
