    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.

    Lately I have been sleeping in the trailer when I go to visit my dads, the rain hitting the roof is very soothing and makes me fall asleep almost instantly.
