Sleep


I want to sleep and never wake
I want to dream for there is no pain
I want to dream for there is no sadness
I want to dream for there is no hurt
But when I dream, there are nightmares
Sometimes these nightmares change
Sometimes they remain
Nightmares that should come to an end when I awake
But don't

Consciousness leads to the ultimate nightmare where
Reality arises with its hatred and judgemental ways
A perperual motion of people despising others
Or making themselves feel worthy by
Making others feel worthless
If I could dream tat perfect dream
Where I could be who I am
Where I can be comfortable within myself
Where I am not judged or hated
Where worth is determined by me
If only I could capture that dream
Then, and only then, might I be content
and never wake
