Can't sleep, I’m wide awake I sit, I ponder
Again over the same issue, worry and fear
I’m told count the sheep makes me wonder
As it's starting to feel like this every year

I keep saying if there's rain, there's thunder
I wish for once the sky for me, it was clear
Making that leap of faith, I feel this shudder 
You know I get so far but not quit as near

But the jump is so steap, it makes me cower
I'm going no where fast, I'm in reverse gear
Collapse in a heap make the same blunder
I'm just so tired of being in this atmosphere                        

It feels like I'm sinking deep I'm going under
But I ask could I really be anymore sincere
You know I can't help but weep and wonder
And ask myself, where do I go from here?? 

Parts of this were apart of a poem I wrote back in 2005 
Called where do I go from here just added two extra verses
as felt the whole poem where do I go from here talking of three
different issues so some new some old written 2012,,,,,,,,,,,
again with this one its been uodated a little put in to better context
to give better sense of what talking about again using metaphores
and keeping to a pattern........
