Sleepless Souls

History is full of sleepless souls and their state infernal,

And the sad tales they are a part of,

What takes their sleep away?

Some say the force is external others go for the internal.


Do we have to go further?

Othello, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth,

And scores of others are enough to delve into the causes,

And the source is the tragedies of Shakespeare.


Now and again some decide to leave searching for peace hereafter,

Others daren’t go against religion rather retain patience like Lear.
