Darkness, utter darkness
It sweetly whispers into my ear
"Sweet child rest, you're happy and you're safe now."
I want to embrace it, to become a part of it
I'm just so, sleepy
Suddenly a garish light shines
I want it gone!
The darkness keeps whispering sweet things into my ears
The light burns my eyes!
"Leave me!" I scream and shout and fight
I don't want to leave the sweet embrace of darkness
But I realize my fight is over when
I hear a loud voice piercing the darkness
Saying "Tom get up for school!"
I tear up slightly
But I get up from my all too comfy bed
And start my daily routine
