Sonnet: A Family in Need

I seem to sleep when I should be awake,

I dream rather than live reality.

Unconsciousness offers me amnesty,

From duty, and the decisions I make


One after another. I fear a break,

In our relationship. I disagree,

And so I must fight you to guarantee

My family get all that they can take.


As you research need, leave no stone unturned.

We ask only for that which we require,

We would never take that which is unearned.

But please make haste, for time builds only ire.


And if we feel that you are unconcerned,

Then be warned, for you shall face trial by fire.
