    No Snooze Button In Life

    today i got up
    hit the snooze for 10 min
    hoping to get an extra hour of sleep
    today i woke up..
    realized that no matter how long i rest..
    id never be able to pass my bosses test..
    you kno, makin it to work on time..
    each day without fail..
    Just to hard to stay awake,
    when the most of the world,
    awake.. but still sleep.
    I steadily wait for alarms to go off,
    but i guess like me,
    they enjoy the retreat of deep sleep,
    protected from the ways of the world,
    Ever get in your car,
    and drive to work..
    and have no recolection of how you arrived?
    Robotics,
    of a trained mind... unnaffected by the world,
    This is your wake up call,
    what have you been missing?
    There is no snooze button on life,
    you have no choice but to wake up!
