    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 just wanna run away sometimes, find an old tin barn start a little campfire in there and fall asleep to the sound of rain. It seems to cure all ailments for the moment anyhow.

    Laying on my bed at night listening to the sound of the rain falling, brings clarity to thoughts. Clears the air and hearing the cloud burst, takes away all that negative thought.
