Always Important


Waking up early
when I want to sleep in…
Feeling tired,
wanting to roll over
and go back to sleep–
getting up anyway.
Sitting on my cushion
feeling tired and heavy,
starting to nod off,
trying to staying awake.
Still feeling tired,
getting drowsier,
wanting to lie back down,
sitting up straighter,
staying awake somehow.
My meditation practice
teaches me
the meaning of discipline.
It’s hardly ever fun,
but it is always important.
