Curiosity Killed the Light

One random lazy day,
I’ve decided to explore and go a separate way,
Where I’ve came across a bed for the dead.

Stones of stories erect from the earth,
For display for everyone to look,
I ponder when my bed will be made,
When my light turns into a somber shade,
And my music quietly fades.

I felt as if I could lay down,
As if my time was now,
But I have too much on my plate,
Oh! For Heaven’s sake,
What happened to my lazy day?
My time can wait!
