Feelings some mornings. When you are in the twilight zone and are half awake and half asleep and are trying to search for a reason to wake up that day.

Wake Up

Wake up to the afterlife
Wake up to hell
Wake up in the fire
With a rotting smell
Wake up to the ads
Running all around
Wake up to the people
Robots moving around.
Wake up to the monotony
Everything is the same
Wake up in a meeting
With a tired face
Wake up to the commute
Hours and hours a day
Wake up to the paycheque

A pain in the neck
Wake up to the bills
Or to swallow some pills
Or your angry spouse
Loud and shrill


Wake up, or not to wake up
Or should I snore away
Just roll in, in the sheets
And dream the dreams away
