I Couldn’t Sleep Last Night — Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Sleep came hard last night…it seemed to avoid me

My eyes were closed, but my mind —well, I think you understand.

What caused my thoughts to shift and drift, and scream around in my head

Was the thought (or is it fear) we are in the middle of a cultural revolution.

We are in a time where we are crazily divided

There are sectional tensions and a feeling of gathering paranoia.

A feeling of not just drifting forward, but we jolting head-long–tumbling, falling, so to speak.

I woke, telling myself, I will put this out there—My thoughts need somewhere to go

A way to exhale; to stop the constant whispering at the back of my mind

So I shall write this, and let my worries, cares, and concerns dissipate

I will continue to believe in treating the earth well, the common decency of each and every person I meet, and

That common sense will bond us together. Not the squealing anger and fear

Which, randomly jumps out at us (me) now and again.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Believe me, you are not the only one who suffers from sleepless nights. I hope putting your thoughts out here will help them dissipate. I think we all need to try harder to be the best that we can be.


  2. I think a lot of people are up or awake late. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts, it’s a good thing. I try not to say much. Veterans around here are very concerned and are being “watchful”. Beyond sad at the destruction of our historical monuments in Colo and elsewhere ~


  3. During the ’60’s I traveled ( hitched) extensively around the country. One of the important realizations that came from that is that most people are decent, and want to help out. These days it’s important to hang on to that.


  4. Well said. You have tapped into what many are thinking. All of this turmoil is wearing on everyone. And, the fact that everything is happening the same way all over the planet tells me this was coordinated.
