A Great Relief From Insomnia

Poem by Rekha Mandagere

How beautiful life is
If I could sleep on the lap
Of a nursing mother
Who can gently cure
The wounds that are done
To me by this cruel lots
Just to satisfy their egos
I wish to forget such fears
That disturbs my slumber
And take relief from nightmares
Let me get forth of this mania
By bidding good bye to insomnia!
And go to hug soothing sleep!

    Three poems in a day on the problem of insomnia looked at from different angles! Wish you all the best and pray to the Lord who gives you wakefulness so generously to grant you slumber too in good measure. It is He who decides when one should be awake and when asleep. If this truth is understood and life surrendered to him, then the problem of insomnia will be well-handled. (9)(Report)Reply
