Rest Ain't Easy

by Jhahbriel C. E. Moore Sr.

Grandma always taught me
that life is about learning.
Life is about lessons often
taught through experiences.

“Boy…what doesn’t kill you
will make you stronger………”

She would always say.

But you see, Rest ain’t easy for a soul like mine.

Time after time after time….
Tossing and turning
My emotions like fire….burning
I can’t close my eyes…

Why?  You got to know who has the upper hand.

Hell! It ain’t man.

Rest was never easy for a man like me.
I can’t sleep worrying about life you see.

Are we going to war, are we all going to die…
Those are a few things that keep me up at night.

Am I going to love in 2003?
Or will I be alone… night with no peace?
It is what it is………….It was what it was…
And it will be what it will be.

Rest just ain’t easy.
