unbearable tiredness

It grates at the bones that shiver and crack

Under incredible weight that drags us all down

But sometimes it seems greater alone in the night

When doubts and insecurities creep into the minds

Of even the strongest of humans in time.

We’re all subject to fears as dark as these dreams

That crowd in the corners of shadowy rooms,

But it’s the strength at these times

That make life or break spirits in two

But tiredness will pass with the wonder of sleep

And the healing that happens in the land of Sir Nod.
