Permanent Slumber

I stay up late each night

Dashing through school tasks

Being distracted now and then

A tempting pull

To abandon the path

I always comply

Because my will is always overpowered

Like a mom overpowers her children

And I cannot focus as a barricade made of dreams

Is blocking me inside my mind


Right now

I am in the middle of exams

But I continue to plow the field of distractions

I get bad grades

My parents yell at me

I try to do better

Distractions call upon me again

And I am stuck in a vicious cycle

I wish I could just sleep

And never wake up
