Times of rest I must admit
Are needed daily… So do commit.
But when you awake consider this,
Do you walk about as a Sleeper still?
Do you open your eyes to the world around?
Are you a support and is humanity found?
Are your goals for show, for great applause,
To strut in public in response to calls?
When you raise your head, shall you a Sleeper remain?
Blind or uncaring, thinking only of gain?
True life is not a battle of me versus you.
For greatest contentment, now what shall we do?
Awake now Sleeper. Open true eyes.
Close abysses. Build bridges. One stone at a time.
Awake now Sleeper. Awake.
