My brain was enjoying a vivid dream when it was rudely
Yanked into reality by the alarm.
Barely able to force my eyes open because of my short night, I
I try to focus on the chore list of the day to get myself going. I must
Reach into myself and find
The energy to get it all done.
Happy thoughts, happy thoughts, I chant as I
Drag my body out of bed
And into the new day. After all, today is the day I celebrate another
Year of life!
