Restless Reflection

Restless Reflection:

You want to go to sleep. 

Why don’t you go to sleep? 

There is no justification for staying awake.  

You have every reason to seek rest.  

So, why the reluctance?  

Why do you invent excuses to stay up? 

Why do you feel compelled to keep the moon company? 

You should retire for the day sooner. 

These thoughts only seem to plague you in the morning.  

The weariness amplifies the regret you feel for your foolish actions.  

If only you could have these reflections at night.  

Unfortunately, you are only introspective in the morning.
