when sleep is sweet

i am weary
because under no uncertain terms
will i give in...
to defeat..
i will trample underfoot
the thought alone..
ah! sleep is sweet!
sleep is sweet..
and life is great..
when one has simplified
the error of ones ways...
in spite..of pride.
for pride becomes a prison
to those inclined to sin..
and forgiveness the antedote
to all ill that dwells within..
but sleep is sweet..
it woo's the soul
that spirit of unrest..
to cleanse the heart..
confession's power..
renews the life of men.

Ah, yes, when you put it this way, sleep does truly sound great. I am not about to change my night owl ways, but a wonderful poem!! Keep up the great work!!
