It's Only Sleep

only when politics were considered did it all go south
expectations and stands
living with only the mad became irrational

people littered the floors
dreams unrealized, like they always are. and should be.
dissappointment follows followed by a forgetting

the forgetting was the best part. expectations gone.
back to the source of life
understanding and learning

not everyone has to be a teacher all the time
as if it were even possible
appreciation does have it's charms

and people deserve the opportunity to be appreciative
gratfulness in such short supply
but expectations return and it begins again

worry when there are no expectations
never to be remembered
choose your sleepless nights wisely

they indicate some needed action
the noises this time of morning!
it's only sleep
