“The Day Shall Declare It”

“I feel like I can’t breathe. It keeps me awake. (pause) People will say you’re not like the other boys. It goes on night after night. I don’t sleep. I just lie there with that feeling inside me like a chest full of feathers. Take your place in the world. I need something that’ll help, that’ll get me some sleep. Grow up. Do you understand? I can’t go on like this, just lying there night after night looking up at the ceiling and expecting.”
