FUCK Sleep

FUCK Sleep

“Can’t never sleep cause it’ll cost niggas.” - FUTURE

Now, I can’t be the only person that feels this way, fuck sleep.  Some of you probably think I’m crazy for saying that and I don’t blame you. I have reasoning behind what I’m saying though. Imagine what we could accomplish if we never slept? The possibilities are endless. You ever have that certain type of drive to where you feel that nobody on this planet can stop you? I feel that way damn near everyday. The only problem with this is it sort of goes away when I go to sleep. If you know this feeling then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Right before you go to bed you have all these great ideas and everything just seems to come to you at once, giving you that “I can conquer anything” aura.

So, you try to put these ideas into action or at least attempt to. During this surge of greatness that you feel, your body might be telling you something different… that it’s time for bed. So you listen and end up falling asleep. You wake up and all of that drive, burst of energy, or whatever you want to call it, is just gone like it never happened. You might feel lost or like shit, for me it varies. That’s when I say, “fuck sleep.” I could’ve made a million dollars the night before from an idea that I had, but fucking sleep got in the damn way.

I really think sleep is useless and if there was an actual thing like granting wishes, one of them would be to never sleep again. Now with no sleeping, my body of course, would not get tired…ever. My thoughts would always be intact, no forgetting great ideas and yes I know I could just write them down beforehand, but it’s not the same. I could seize any and every moment that there is, no need to say “there isn’t enough time in the day.” I would just be a full on workhorse with nothing else to do but get to it.

Overall, I think life would just be a lot better. I used to love sleep, but I now know what Nas meant when he said “sleep is the cousin of death” cause too much of that shit can kill you and if not literally, at least kill your dreams. If you aren’t chasing your dreams then you might as well be dead anyway, but that’s for another time. Just know it’s fuck sleep and I hate it for trying to stop me from being great. Notice I said try cause that will be the very last thing to do something like that. Remember all that you’ve read the next time you want to take a nap or it’s getting late and you feel like calling it a night…one more time, FUCK SLEEP.
