Deep, Deep Sleep
By Dominique, age 15, Wisconsin
I need an antidote for this restless thinking.
I'm overwhelmed with stress and frustration when I'd rather be dreaming.
An escape, if you will, because I can't run away physically.
Just a getaway without someone constantly quizzing me.
I want a deep, deep sleep so that when I wake up I don't remember a thing.
When I wake up I want to be able to sing ... happy songs ...
Like a happy girl.
Wake up and be able to conquer the world.
Wake up and do just that with no agenda and my schedule free.
Wake up and be focused on nothing but me.
But first I gotta fall asleep.
Deep, deep sleep.
