Don’t mind!

I only write
at night
to stop the fear
the thoughts
the fright
to hope
to dream
to sleep tonight
with pure delight
and wake up in the morning light
well rested
invested
in a new day
a new way
to avoid the games my head may play
my mind is ever turning
and yearning
for learning
but this is my admission
sometimes my mind seems like a juxtaposition
between lion and limpy gazelle
the heat change between heaven and hell
the concept of a kid stuck in a wishing well
that’s swell
let me clarify
or just simplify
I’m physically exhausted from running circles in my head
you’d think I’d sleep when I hit the bed
but then my brain
like a children’s train
goes in circles again
and again
that’s why
I only write
at night
