    It's Been Getting Me to Sleep

    A dream so big
    Almost impossible
    But lately it's been getting me to sleep
    And thats all that counts
    “Practice makes perfect”
    So I'm gonna try
    It's the only thing I don't get bored with
    It's freedom, like my mind
    Expressing feelings and opinions
    With one quick thought
    I like to think I'll be the next Bukowski
    Sitting on stage drinking whiskey
    Doing what he loves
    They always tell me find what you're good at
    And stick with it
    I found it... I hope..
    But the sticking part is not so easy
    My interests are never constant
    But they are always as obsessive as the last
    Hopefully this isn't another pipe dream
    Hopefully this one's life
    Like a ripened orange
    I peel my depressed, boring, and witty skin
    To find passion and creativity
    Below the obsession of drugs and anxiety
    Lies humor and personality
    Lies poetry and religion
    Lies faith and trust
    But this purity is scarred
    Scarred by negativity
    Scarred by God's left hand
    And it brings me grief
    And sorrow
    But the negatives of reality are inescapable
    So I try to take the best and leave the rest
    Because life is too short to deal with this shit.
