Slogging through the Midnight

Slogging through the midnight
Wishing to alter my sleeping habit
Only to realize
Determination alone isn’t enough
Strong will alone isn’t enough
Mind alone isn’t enough
Own plan will not prevail
Fatigue body in control
Render myself helpless
Entering the dream entrance
Exiting the dream world late morning
Changing sleeping habit fails

Slogging through the midnight
Wishing to alter my sleeping habit
Awaiting dawn
Leave my sleeping bed
Entering into an empty room
Switching on the light
Thinking poetry
Processing my thoughts
Writing poetry
Awaiting dawn
To pass the day sleepily
Possibly to sleep at 9 o’clock night

Hoping to change my unhealthy sleeping habit, I resolved to have a sleepless night in order to wake up early at 5am in the morning. Looking through the incomplete poetry to pass the midnight. Most attempts were failed due I fell asleep. This time I try again and see the result. The keyword “slogging through the night” helped me to begin this poetry.

Warm Hug

In the morning
A sweet voice
Wakes me up
We begin the
Day with prayer

First time to
See him climb
To my bed
Lie beside me
Seeking to hug
We hug together
This delight me
Warmth fills atmosphere
Warmth feelings fill
Inside my heart
And I think
Warmth feelings fill
In his heart

My heart was delighted for my son to climb out of his bed towards my bed. This is the first time for him to do so. Warmth filled the atmosphere. Then he left the room for milk.
