when I'm awake this late
(on DST spring-ahead night, no less)
even when my eyes squint
from chronic fatigue
and I'm running a road race
in a 7.5 hours
(not counting
how early
I must get up
for travel and stretching
and pre-race caffeine),

I have to wonder
how much of this
insomnia issue
is lack of willpower?

As in,
how hard is it
to remember that
sleeping is
in my best interest
and if I
really wanted to try,
I'd just
shut my eyes?

I don't know. 
It's a mystery.
