The body awakes

The body awakes, another day of life Message sent, who is in charge? I am, I am, loud and strong Logical thinking needs a chance. Who is first in the queue? Is it touch or is it sight? Think it through No need to fight. The brain sits there smiling, Nothing can happen Unless permission was given. Back and forth the game continues Ideas and suggestions flowing The brain gets bored of interaction. Makes a statement, time running out Decide method of satisfaction. Everything goes quiet, lost for words Brain persists with lesson actions, Without permission, nothing will happen. Eyes send signals, need interpreting Hands join the action, hot, cold, hard, soft, hot, do not touch, cold, pain received, Hard, touched without reaction, Soft, you squeeze, satisfaction, Messages received; thanks are given. All goes quiet, where did the sound come from? I am the voice; can I join in? Boredom now joins the din No return to bodily discussions, Tired now eyes are closing. Through the night, the heart beat steadily Resisting the chance to say, sleep soundly my children.
