when everything else fails

Sleep Baby Sleep (for a sleeping beauty)

nighttime birds are singing tonight
deep within dream deep dream light
calling you to join them fly aloft
sleep baby sleep sound sleep soft

your water is cold because you forgot to heat
your lunch is cold because it’s unmade
got a hell lot to study but your resolve is wane
you are hungry you don’t know how to be sane

the sun was high all along and you are still undone
got parties to attend and still you are in bed
switch that bugging cell phone off
they shall not bother you anymore

they have been ringing you around the clock
those buggers need to get a life and sleep
why the hell can’t you lay little bit more
the bed is warm and outside it looks cold

you are lazy as your fluffy pillow
you are warm in your wooly blanket
was down since twelve hours or is it more
day ahead is hard and got no idea what to do

if you get up you have to cook but you are weak
also will have to study more and it’s long overdue
so better sleep more and sleep tight
dream more wonder why can’t you sleep forever

nighttime birds are singing tonight
deep within dream deep dream light
calling you to join them fly aloft
sleep baby sleep sound sleep soft

    hmm this is the sheer misery of being trapped in a place where you are forced to study and do stuff that you don’t fancy ..couldn’t really use the word “misery” since it’s always not the same i guess..but i think the “you” in this poem tries hard to be him/her self despite the things he/she need to do in order to keep the things sane in other words ..to keep up with the wills and needs of the society and the environment “you” is living..and all that aside the character seem to be so tired that it could use a vacation or some good rest ..after all this is pretty straight forward lol
