Tired mind begs for sleep
Willpower says Not yet.
I press on,
and nobody knows the reason.
I have put this pressure on myself,
and yet, it feels natural and helpful
to reach for my deepest good
and to manifest it outwardly
in thought, word and deed.
Let me stay grounded within my deep center
Let me ask not for escape
or fall into the trap of entitlement.
Let me watch my children in their play
and remember the spark of divinity
within us all.
