    Thoughts race through my mind ,

    I'm not happy . I can't solve these problems . I can't solve my self . I can't fix my past or my brain . I can't fix people around me .

    Can't sleep again... maybe it's the fact

    that I have school in the morning and I really don't want to go. I also haven't done my homework for maths. I hate maths. I hate school. Meh:(((

    I can't sleep knowing my mom is nearing the end of her life. I cried a river today. On top of that today is my fathers birthday, he passed 4 years ago. For any young adults reading this, cherish your parents for one day they will be gone.
