Hour 22: Wake yourself up

I gave up on drinking caffeine,
And with it both soda and coffee,
I’ve been without both for five years now.
How will I wake myself up?

I never have thought there’s a reason
For running just so I can run.
It’s pointless unless I’m in danger.
How will I wake myself up?

My eyes are technically open,
My fingers are typing these words.
My brain may not be engaged, though.
How will I wake myself up?

I don’t have to go to the office,
I don’t need to set an alarm.
Today is still part of the weekend,
I don’t need to wake myself up!

    For running just so I can run.
    It’s pointless unless I’m in danger.”
