poem ~ I wanna sleep

Some days when I crawl in bed 
there's just too many thoughts 
running around in my head.

Just when I think I might get to sleep 
my body decides
to just skip that beat.

How can I be so utterly tired
and my body not listen
to what it really desires?

What will it take to create the shift 
to release all the things 
keeping me occupied by it?

Some days I think I have figured it out 
and other days it becomes clear 
I'm still stuck in my doubts.

So as I lay here and reflect 
on what matters the most
I'm filled with gratitude that you're apart of it.
