"What's stealing your sleep tonight? ",
A question I keep asking myself,
Over and over again,
Almost a daily occurrence.
"Thoughts", I can say with clarity ,
About what, Not so much clarity there,
Random thoughts on unconnected events,
Trying to make patterns where none exist.
About a future that I wish for,
Not so much building castles in the air,
More in terms of what would I face,
A bit far-fetched, indeed.
About the past I have crossed,
On what I have learned from it,
How to not go there again,
Choosing the right option, the next time around.
About the present, I am living,
How it has been affected by my past,
And will affect my future,
The cause-effect of the past, present and future.
I fall asleep somewhere in the middle,
Rest continues as a dream,
Dream or nightmare,
The million dollar question.
