A War of Two Lives

Battle on, both day and night.

Do I sleep a better day, when
Fitful dreams fill my nights?
With me losing to all the fights,
Why so many battles then?

Waken me now from this pit.
Within this darkness is my dream
Inside I scream for fear and fit
Of all my horrors not yet seen.

Sleep brings me help, a welcome rest.
Dream from this life of daily test.
Rest I shall, to pass two trials,
One for day, the other at night.

Wake or sleep, I live to fight.

Dream On (– Aerosmith — )

Look two ways, both day and night.
Mind the gaps, cuz there’s the fright.
