Dreams Are Never Easy

by Wenona Gardner


I want to deal with the night.

I try to deal with the fright.

I am wanting to be there.

I am wanting to be far away.

My dreams reveal the side of me

that I don’t want to see.

I wake up in fright

in the dead of night.

I am not what you want me to be.

I try and I am not that way to be.

I want to be the one to lay to rest

all the thoughts that keep me from rest.

I know what I want or

so I thought, but now I am not so sure.

I don’t know what I can do

to get through to you.

Sitting in the darkness of the night

trying to make it go alright.

I need to rest

Why can’t I rest?

I am up all night

watching a TV show

from long ago.

All the way to the dawn.

I am operating on no sleep.

I tried to rest

but didn’t get to sleep.

I struggle

and I wrestle with

my conscience.

I hope to put it all aside

and to lay down to rest.
