Jet-Lagged

by joetwo

Up!
My mind says that I should be asleep
Yet my body screams to wake
Tossing and turning
Time to wake
Time to rise and shine
Four hours in the difference grates on the mind
Fills it with thoughts of things not yet done
Body struggles, fighting reason
Demanding action, to get up
To seize the day
When the day hasn’t begun yet
At least not here
I keep trying to force sleep upon myself
But it is all for not
I am jet-lagged
And my time has not quite caught up with here yet

Written while jet-lagged for Trifecta week Sixty-Eight.
