The World Is Asleep - Poem by Jennifer Chalk

The world is asleep,
Yet it is silently atuned
To fixing all ills in its wake
For our sake. As we slumber
It toils and negates life's spoils
By turning sense to nonsensical
Flights of dreams, as it mends
Our bodies to create dividends
For a free future of light and possibility,
When all around us speak inability.
