Day 18: To _____ (fill in the blank)

"To sleep, perchance to dream, ay, there's the rub..." (Hamlet, by William Shakespeare)


When I close my eyes tonight,
What road will I travel?
Will my journey's path be smooth,
Or will my fears unravel?

When I drift off, will I fly
To places good or evil?
Will I plunge into despair
With no hope of retrieval?

When I sleep I never know
Which way I'll be taking
Until the dawn brings memories
To haunt me while I'm waking.

Caren  E. Salas
