LONG DARK NIGHT

The night had been long and dark I cannot sleep I don’t know what to do. I thought I 
would just lie alone in my bed and listen to all the sounds I here around me. I try to 
figure out what they may be. I think I hear the sound of the crickets call its dark I can’t 
see. I also here what sounds like cars going down the road I don’t know its dark I can’t 
see. So many other sounds I here around me. When lying alone in the dark your mind 
will play tricks on you. Sometimes you here things you can’t explain. If you listen long 
enough they will drive you insane. That is just your mind playing tricks on you. On a 
night you can’t sleep what do you do so your mind will not play tricks on you.
