I am an amateur writer, photographer, and artist who loves Jesus and wants to further His kingdom by bringing glory to His name! My age is the square root of 256; I play five musical instruments. My mom home-schools me with the patience of God!

Look from other people's (and thing's) perspectives. Feeling what they feel, seeing what they see, and touching what they touch.

FREE WRITING

I'm going to sleep
All the night through
No dreams, no sounds
Nothing askew.

But first things first,
I must get into bed
My nice cozy mattress 
The best brand, it is said. 

But alas! Goes sleep
Right out the window.
How could I forget?
Up from my pillow.

I'm out of bed now
Closing the window
And now, ah ha! 
I lay down on my pillow. 

But still sleep evades
My weary, closed eyes
So now I count sheep
While my mind flies. 

Sheep do not work
To calm my wild brain,
Perhaps if I read
About a wrecked train.

My flashlight in hand
I read my best novel
About buses and people,
Places and travel.

A minute goes by
My eyelids are drooping 
The words on the page
Blurring and fading.

So now I've fallen
Into a deep sleep
And won't wake up
Until the sound of a beep.
