To Wake

A mind that wakes to greet the day is very hard to keep
The dreams it holds,
The will it hides
Are often lost in sleep

To reach across that distant wall I cannot comprehend
My body creeps
To and fro
Until the dawn begins

But, firmly in the in between I don't know how to fight
To keep the knowledge
On the edge
Hidden from the night

Waking up is such a shock, an insult to my brain
However long
The night may be
No longer than the pain
