The Impossible Sleep

A natural thing to sleep
not something for everybody
when some sleep with ease
for others sleep not their body

This has been so since creation
it may be too much food
could be had too much coffee
even be too alert or be in wrong mood

We are all made different
certainly not all the same
the complexities of the human being
makes it difficult what to blame

So can it ever be cured?
for every person probably no
but many things can't be done
on this fallen world of woe
