“To Sleep”

A/N: I would eventually love to create a small collection of my poetry. Thus, I have been working more on it lately to work out a collection I might eventually release in digital form, or find a printer to release some copies of it.

I always return to that field.
And as the wheat sways with the wind
I imagine
I too am light enough
to sway with it.

Imagine!–that if my burdens
were not heavy,
that if my cracked feet
would not bleed,
that if my tears
could but be dry,
then maybe–
I too could be
molded so soundlessly.
So effortlessly it would be
to sleep.
