Lay it Down

I’m tired and weak

Yet, I don’t sleep

For fear of the day slipping past.


Cling to the hour

With its waning power

And the deepening shadows it casts.


Sleep would be sweet

Though a form of retreat

And I’m stuck now in full forward gear.


So I stare at the wall

And softly recall

The path that brought me here.


I see clear to the end

Time isn’t a friend

It quickens, never slowing


What once brought a thrill

Now can easily kill

Was I happier not knowing?


Lay it down,

Cast it out

Let it go
