What did you think…

when you didn’t wake up today?

Were you surprised?

Excited?

Or did you have more to say?

What did you do

when you didn’t wake up today?

Did you take in the sunrise

From the light side of the universe,

Or is that too

just a cliche?

What did you feel

when you didn’t wake up today?

Scared, tired, nervous?

or pleased

to have no further debts to pay?

What do you now know,

since you didn’t wake up today?

Is it all for nothing?

Let us know,

Somehow,

Some way.
