I don’t want to get out of bed
But the day is quickly passing
Why am I so lethargic these days?
Where has all my energy gone?
I don’t think that I’m depressed
But I can’t seem to rise before mid-morning
Has my body clock been reset to teenager mode?
At times you’d have to wonder
It’s a good thing that at the moment
I’m not currently working in a job
Though maybe if I was
I’d actually be able to get up?
The irony is that I’m actually finding
It hard to sleep at night
But surely it can’t be a hypomanic state
When I awake the next morning so tired?
Maybe it’s sheer laziness
Or my body luxuriating that I’ve finally stopped
Catching up on decades of sleep-deficit
Or am I thinking about this too much?
Tonight I’m going to go to bed earlier
I’m determined to arise before ten tomorrow!
Though I have a sinking feeling
That I will spend hours not being able to sleep
But that is a risk I have to take
Tick tock the hours are passing by
It’s the middle of winter after all
There’s not much daylight to play by
Tomorrow I will get up earlier
Tomorrow I will not lie in
I will reset my clock back to adult mode
I will get up and make the most of the day
I am determined to rise and get things done
There’s too much to do not to!
But tomorrow is another day after all
And I will work on this I promise, tomorrow
