    It Is Difficult

    I find it hard to sleep because I'm stuck lost in thoughts. I'm thinking of the past, the future, college. I'm wondering where I see myself in the future. I'm afraid of living and dying. I just want to sleep forever and have a never ending dream of my perfect world.

    I love falling asleep to the sound of rain. Even a thunder storm, weirdly enough......but I cannot and will not sleep if I can hear a tap dripping.
