Wakeup Call

I’m so tired all the time,
drowsily sleepwalking
through the darkness
like a zombie.

Every day- a routine
accomplished automatically
without any thought,
as if I’m a robot
programmed to live this way
(if you can call this living).

First thing every morning,
I wipe the lethargy away
and go through the motions
just dreaming of a nap.

Maybe I need a wakeup call,
something to alarm me
and revive me so I’m
more than just breathing.
