Do We Sleep? - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

do we sleep?
do we wake always?

At night we dream
so in sleep we wake.

And in the morning
tired sinews sleep
sub-conscious and secret
while the body machine works.

We wake and sleep
and sleep and wake
and march
a cluster and a herd
we march
we march
conscious in part
sub-conscious in part
always, always.

We, who are we?
It is the I, myself!
We is I.
We is I, the Poet Seer.
