strife

Standard

food to eat

some quality sleep

a family to love

nothing more deep

pure laughter

and simple needs

make up my life

i have no greed

yet i lie in bed

with no sleep

my parents are long gone

i want to weep

but then i pick up the pieces

of my broken life

and muster the courage

to continue this strife

SLEEP….Tokubetsudesu #56 Choka (or Nagauta)

Standard

the night descends

making my mind fearful

of what lies ahead

the myriad thoughts about life

in my head

making sleep more elusive

and the insomniac is ready to face the world

(envoy or hanka)

and the long day ahead

makes me daydream about sleep

ironical it is

to wait for the night to descend

circle of life at its best
