I Find It Difficult to Fall Asleep

    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 it most when there's thunder. Even though it's all stormy and chaotic outside you can just cuddle up in a blanket and feel all warm and safe.
