Barely Awake

The sun can rise and set
Breakfast lunch and dinner
Served and cleared
Left out or devoured
By the time you’re barely awake
When you’re barely awake
Your dreams still exist
But fading
Your desire’s strong
Without resolve
Words of truth ring
Without motivation
I must be barely awake
Is it my turn?
Can a choice still be made?
Will the time ever come?
Or always too late
When you’re barely awake.
… Don’t be so certain
It is how it seems
The chance still exists
…. From out of your dreams
That hope will die last
It hasn’t failed
It’s always in reach
You’re just barely awake
