The Alarm Clock

The Alarm Clock

Blog from February 7th, 2007 -


I am an alarm clock.

I’ve been buzzing for the past few years

But it was easy enough to ignore

My gentle protest and continue to slumber


As of recently the noise has grown louder.

You’ve been hitting snooze,

But each passing day it grows harder

For you to stay at rest.


You don’t want to wake up.

The dreams are so comforting

And you know reality is a let down,

But the sound has grown penetrating


The time has come to make a choice

Either listen to the warning that is breathing in your brain

Or surrender to your weakness

And become a slave in name.


I am an alarm clock

And I am sounding the alarm

Like Paul Revere did years ago

I’m riding down the lane




“Wake up!”
