Go to Bed Hungry


     Sleep....peaceful sleep. Your chance to exit the chaos for a while.
      Hunger... beggar of your contentment.  Thief of sleep.
      Why would you ever choose hunger,... when it may keep you from your slumber?  Why would you attempt to feed yourself from the human menu of insatiability?     When it feeds the consciousness that is life.   When it becomes a matter of the soul...
     Do you have no  passion....no desire....except for sleep, peaceful sleep?
Sometimes it is okay to go to  bed hungry. Then,   let your dreams follow you into reality.  When you finally awaken, feed the hunger that is your passion and desire, and keeps your spirit alive in the arms of hope.
     It has been estimated that more than a billion people go to bed hungry every night.  It's time to join them. It is time for you, as an American ...to feel the bottomless pit and pain of hunger.
You can even stuff  yourself with milk and oreos , and sneak a 3 a.m. snack. But wake up with some passion for the things that feed your soul. Do you consider yourself lucky to go to bed with a full belly.....but an empty soul?

  1. Very good work, altogether. (A kindred acknowledgement of things deeply seen and complexities dared to voice...)
