Sleep On a Dare

Tired …you amble …towards …the porch
One … more attempt …to stay awake
Reminds me … When I was a kid, you’d say …it’s sleep
Time, hurry along … I’d say …I’m not tired (willfully strong)
My head hit the pillow … mumble …stare …sleep on a dare
You do it too … don’t know why …you push
Till forever …ponder …sigh …eyelids …go south
Consciousness struggles  … flop ‘n  stop
SLEEP ON A DARE? WILLFULLY STRONG!
