1:00 AM #Poetry

1:00 flashes on the alarm clock
Eyes shut
Mind awake
Stirring up thoughts
Past and future
Unknown awaiting
Another night
Ticking away

  1. Hi Jason,
    This poem is effective in describing what it’s like to be caught in that place in which we worry about tomorrow and look back at the past that we cannot change. The middle of the night is a strange time indeed-we’re supposed to be asleep but our minds keep churning! I keep the Book of Psalms on my nightstand and pray for help to be still. Being still isn’t easy. Your poem has captured this feeling.
