Sun peaks through the blinds

The clock reads 7:00 AM

The sound of birds chirping a faint distance away slips into the room

My cell phone lights up and a ring tone starts to play

I put my pillow over my head, hoping time will pause and I can sleep just 5 minutes longer

The sleep setting clicks and I feel a sensation of hope

Only to hear the same ring tone again 2 minutes later
