“No Sleep” Poem of the Day (2022)

“No Sleep”

By Ashley O’Hare

I don’t want to sleep tonight–

there is too much to do.

I cannot rest my eyes

until I reach chapter two.

If I don’t push myself

I’ll be stuck here forever.

this life won’t get any better

unless I put in the effort.

I’ve got my schedule printed out–

I’m fully booked all week.

Until my to-do list dwindles,

I won’t feel like me.

So let me make my tea

and get a jolt of caffeine.

If I keep moving forward

this will be over soon.
