I am told that because of the PTSD I will probably never get a regular nights sleep. It’s 4:00 AM here (update: okay never mind it is 5:00 AM right now.. lovely!)… and I am not asleep… Sure I could be angry. But you learn to live with it. Just like you learn to live with whatever obstacles life throws at you. Medical bills, school debt, spastic colon (these just examples people not me in particular, I don’t have a spastic colon… or do I?), blood sucking vampire zombie werewolf nazis (god I hate those things), you overcome and move on.
So hopefully I can channel the last little bit of brain energy that I have left into something creative, something to share with the rest of the world. I want to give back to my fellow man with a beautiful poem that will inspire and move generations to come. I want to change the world with this poem, so what better way to change the world via poem then using a short, simple haiku.
Now for those of you who are
B.) Overly American (we don’t get out much on this side of the pond)
C.) Older than 5 and don’t remember
D.) Have been awake over 26 hours now (yay)
You may be a little confused on what a haiku is and what it entails. A haiku (here in America anyway) follows this rule 5 syllable line, 7 syllable line, 5 syllable line scheme. Didn’t remember? Neither did I, thank you Google! How do you count syllables? Well here at beaten we use the most advanced scientific methods to insure our haikus meet the standard! The clap method, ingenious I know!
Without further ado my haiku (no I didn’t rhyme that on purpose… see tired):
I cannot sleep now
Must write this crappy haiku
Done, now go crazy
Perfect, life altering I know. Tomorrow (well later today) will suck. It never is fun falling asleep in class and looking like that idiot who can’t stay awake for class. But comes with the territory I guess, part childhood, part adulthood all my problem. Well I think I am off to fucking bed… Now where did the back of my eyelids run off to… I just saw them a second ago. Anyway where was I… ah yes that made me feel better. I am so much happier now. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY
