you first wake up by setting
six alarms that you cannot tell yourself
you will ignore or, much better,
turn off as that will stop the lousy disturbance
the smartest person in the world will
tell you to go to sleep early and make it
a habit, but they surely have forgotten
about the dark sleepless road before success
now their words have some significance to you
though most of you think it is much easier
to give merit to a darkness with struggle
when all of your garments, actions and words
reek with success already
I wrote this after watching a Billy Collins Masterclass. It’s something quite fun. I hope you wake up early this year 🙂 Happy 2023!
