I find myself insomnolent
At three in the morning
Can’t get back to sleep
Though day is several hours from dawning

It’s a frustrating situation
Because I am truly tired
But I don’t think that I will get
The sleep that is required

I try to relax by breathing
I expand my diaphragm
But the more I try to doze
The more alert I find I am

It’s a vicious circle
It makes me want to weep
The longer that I’m conscious
The harder it is to sleep

So as long as I’m awake
I’ll use the extra time
I get up out of bed
And I pen this little rhyme
