Sleep II

No need
Take heed
No need
For sleep
Light or deep
Sleep' for the weak
To 'sanity' keep
For life
Time divine
One day
Human decline

A powerful piece of poetry indeed. I think this verse demonstrates the fragility of humankind; every time we sleep we take a step closer to our demise - perhaps in our weakness to comprehend our own decline does it approach us. The triviality of the lexis 'puff' demonstartes the inability of humans to the feel compassion for their counterparts - not on the level of one's individual experience, but for humankind as a whole. Or do I just have sleep on my mind?
