GenreAcrostic Poem

I chose the topic Quiet at Night for my piece because I recently had the experience of spending several days in the hospital and did not get a lot of sleep because of the constant disturbances and noise. I chose an acrostic poem because I thought this could best express some of the frustrations that patients feel because of all the disturbances.
