Fitful Dreaming

Sometimes a bump on the head can be good for the soul. I had done some heavy drinking and managed to pass out on a driveway and knocked myself out cold, giving me a slight concussion. Oddly, the concussion wiped out my hangover. When I woke, I had the feeling of writing, and had been mulling over some odd sleep patterns. The following, with a dash of wisdom from Robert Kennedy, was the result.

'Fitful Dreaming'

“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not. ”
-- Robert Kennedy

It is the fate of the fitful dreamer to forever question
For good or ill, they ponder
Restless in slumber, tireless in vision
But lost to tomorrow
Sometimes forgetting today.

The fitful dreamer knows the lessons of the past
The joys and pains they recall
Hoping for the best, expecting the worst
Trapped in the cycle
That is the burden of today.

What, then, is the place of the fitful dreamer?
Wanting for long ago and far away
Lingering in the ebb and flow of time
Yearning for futures gone
Confined to the tragedy of today.

It is the fate of the fitful dreamer to forever question
For they can see tomorrow
When many cannot even fathom today.
