As The Light Goes Out

Written by Tan Nguyen
Friday 27th of May 2016

Weary, exhausted
Eyelids heavy, tired
Stressful, stretched out day
Desperately wanting
Resting thoughts for a night
Tomorrow is another battle

Night, quiet and calm
Thoughts drifting, wandering
Wondering about everyone
If they are alright and well
Before sleep finally arrives
Thinking till thoughts are dreams

Questioning, as always
Afraid, full of doubts
As the light goes out
Resting insecurities,
Only for a moment
Before the sunrises again
Confidence fully restored
Fears assured by the morning light.
