A Pack of Blessings Light Upon Thy Back

Asking why you cannot sleep is just
the same as making sure you never will.
Furthermore, it’s just as well you can’t
access the brute sum of that growing store
a wiser person thought to put aside.
There came a moment in this desperate night
when you realized that you were begging for
the quick resumption of your uphill struggle,
and peace of mind: you wanted nothing more.
Someone loves you best, and others think
that you deserve some trust, and warm regard –
Finish up, then take yourself to bed.
Tomorrow, you will find your wits in tact:
a pack of blessings light upon thy back.
