Restless

I sit at the computer
Late at night
Dreading the day
That’s already here

It’s after midnight

The light of my laptop
Shines in my face
As my eyelids fall
I pick them up again

Why don’t I sleep
Why stay awake

I realized
Sleep isn’t rest
When another long fight
Begins the next day

And I’ve lost all hope
Of winning

Will I ever believe
In myself again?

I must
It’s the only way
To live

    Ah, the persisting evil.

    I just mean that restlessness persists. At least for me, and it’s often to my own demise that it’s constantly around.
