    Never Enough

      I got up early for many years of my life. For the last few years I have slept odd hours, and sometimes get 10 hours, sometimes 5, sometimes 7, but it never feels like enough after I get up. I always want to curl back up on my warm pillows when I make the bed, and not...

    Same Story Every Day Of My Life...

    I go to bed too late, and get up too early... one time last month, I spent 27 hours straight on EP After a few weeks, I was sleeping in 4 hour shifts... One thought I won't have on my death bed is: I wish I had slept more ;)

    I'm tired of being blamed for everything. Always having my flaws and mistakes pointed out. Getting told I'm not good enough. I'm sorry, but last I checked I'm a human too.
