So tired
Sheer exhaustion
Coursing through your body
Your mind pushing itself onward
Don’t stop

Go on
You know you can
Though you want to give in,
push through; so much depends on you
No rest

Unfair
That’s how you feel
And yet you would not trade
Or give away that which you love
No way

Reason
soon wins the day
when you apply yourself
The reason you go on prevails
Now rest.

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
