Reap Health Via Deep SleepApril 12, 2023
Highly deep sleep is a real must,
As body and mind get enough rest,
After deep sleep, will come zest,
Sleep sweeps away the day's dust.
Eight hours of sleep is the best,
Drug less sleep is always the safest,
All the aches, sleep will easily arrest,
Sleepless nights result in the worst.
The Sun is no doubt the toughest,
With no sleep, Sun doesn't rust,
Sun is viewed as a celestial guest,
Sun protects all in the world-nest.
Sleeps not heart inside the chest,
That is why body is strongly robust,
Of all the joys, sleep is the cheapest,
Too much time, in sleep, don't invest.
Sun travels not from the east to west,
When this was discovered at first,
The discoverer was treated as a pest,
For eternal sleep, he entered the list.
One passes safely in the health-test,
If, for him, getting sleep is the easiest,
Though he may be titled as the laziest,
Normally his peace is the loveliest.
To peacefully sleep, mind must adjust,
That day's matters, brain must digest,
A good man sleeping is always just,
After sinning, sleeping is the hardest.
He who sleeps soundly is the richest,
He who has insomnia is the poorest,
If mind is affected by feeling of unrest,
Sleep skips and the loss is the costliest.
In God, put the fullest trust,
Your life, to Him, you entrust,
To make your sleep the deepest,
Calmness will stay in your breast.
Pray to God and avoid unholy lust,
Prayer makes your mind the calmest,
Soon, win in the sleeping contest,
And lead a life that is the happiest.
O Man, To you I now request,
To be in your dealings honest,
If you try in the right earnest,
A rich sleep, you can harvest.
An idle mind is the deadliest,
A thankless heart is the ugliest,
Toil makes the state the sleepiest,
See that your sleep is the soundest.
