If you’ve ever suffered from insomnia,

you’ll understand this pain.

Early morning work hours

that fill my heart with dread

as I wake up four hours early

to keep a level head.

I usually start at eight,

but today it’s seven

and with pain

in my brain,

I’ve slept for two hours.

Am I prepared to deal

and to work?

I highly doubt it.

My head is pounding,

my eyes are heavy,

and my body is ready to give up.

I want to sleep.

We’re supposed to

have a minimum of eight hours…

I’m working on two.

Will I be happy

when a customer calls?

I suppose we’ll have to

wait and see.
