Approaching Dawn

Sleep tries to take hold of me

However, I strive to maintain

The daughter of the night,

Fighting for those precious few hours of bliss

Where the world is shadowed in darkness

Making everyone blind and obscure

Fighting for those moments of peace

Tranquility in the universe

Dawn approaches to fast

There is no hope of keeping the peace

Everyone awakens

And chaos once again reigns in the world.

I like this poem. You express yourself very artistically. Insomnia is a problem for me partly because of medication I have to be on but mostly because my mind is stubborn about not wanting to shut off at night. Therefore I do so appreciate every hour of sleep I can get.
