"Lying Awake at 3 am" by Marjorie Laughlin

Racing thoughts within my head


Dashing darting dangerous

Unwelcome protein

Lack of serotonin

Fuels this brain explosion


Restraining light from escaping

Chaos reigning.

In the depths of misery

Comes a hopeful thought—uplifting


Creative thoughts begin to flow

Pushing darkness down below

Allowing light to free the soul.
