    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.

    Sometimes I'll just lay in my bed and listen to the waves of heavy rain pass over the roof, waiting for the deep bass of thunder. It's so nice to fall asleep too.
