    "Go to bed" my mamma said
    "Why?" I thought, but dared not ask
    That was me when I was young
    There was always something new to be done.

    The years rolled on, mom dragged me out
    Kicking and screaming out of bed
    With half shut eyes and hanging head
    I’d be banished off to school after being fed

    A couple of decades down the line
    I thought "Oh wouldn’t it be divine?
    If I could get but a few extra winks
    Why do babies bawl to sleep?" I would think

    The clock has come full circle now
    As second childhood beckons me
    Believe me, I do know, for that is why
    I kick and scream to say good night.

    When we retire at night
    The precious sleep eludes us,
    When it's time to get out of the bed
    Sleep embraces derailing schedules.
    When we're shooed away to school
    We hated our studies & routines.
    We now long to learn everything in sight
    While nobody cares to hear us out!
    We get what we don't want or
    We don't want what we easily get!

    Irony of life, isn't it, Geeta? Natural curiosity makes learning interesting. Anything that is imposed kills all that joy.

    I am the boss, I am the boss, says the mind
    The pain in the body tells the mind we need to rest
    Who in the world will solve the millions that need resolution
    Asks the mind with passion and the friendly voice
    I yield to the mind knowing he is my best friend,
    not knowing its hidden agenda is not to loose control
    Alas, finally the nature takes over and the body embraces rest,
    eyes shut, ears stop listening, mouth shut, nose stops smelling
    and the skin fail to feel the warmth of the pillow, bed and the sheet
    The mind gives up in frustration knowing I went to a land
    where I can never feel the mind and loose the time and space,
    suddenly all of that experience disappears and mind reinstate
    all of those problems back and I become an ignorant being,
    performing actions assuming I am the doer,
    not knowing the world of bliss is a low hanging fruit and
    it is the mind that keeps my hands tied.

    True Viswa. Studies show that sleep is very essential for weight problems, to help muscles relax sufficiently to ease pain etc. Blessed are those whose minds shut up completely for at least a few hours. It is really annoying to keep twisting and turning and never being sure when that mind will pipe up and take over completely. Anyway, each day is different and we take it as it comes. But I have surely found my answer to why babies refuse to go to sleep!
