    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 really don't like when this happens!! And it's funny because I would tell someone not touch me because I'm in pain!! They ( as good friends) want to make it worse and touch me!!

    Laying in bed, watching the shadows from the Lightning on my wall. The rain isn't heavy, it's soft. The thunder rumbling behind each flash is so relaxing.
