Writhing in pain I
find it hard to sleep
so the mind wanders
wondering, Why sleep?

Sleep studies suggest
it is needed for
repair and order
of body function.

Mind function’s at once
addressed, to process
unresolved feelings,
thoughts, wants . . . stresses of

like adrenalin 
and cortisone
storing guilt and grief.

Evidence points out,
lack of sleep likely
contributes to dis-
ease, forming disease.

On the other hand,
it turns out, the more
we relax, the less
sleep we seem to need.

So the why of sleep
points directly to
its how: find your way
of relaxation . . .

I but watch my wandering mind wonder.
Sooner or later words put me to sleep.
