Random Thoughts

It's 1 am I'm wide awake 
I'm laying down my stomach aches. 
I don't understand why I can't sleep 
I've been out all day working on my feet 
My mind is racing and my thoughts are heavy 
But in reality I don't even know what's going through my mind. 
I try to catch one thought at a time but it slips away and makes it hard to find. 
Will I ever make it out of here? 
The same place I've been stuck at for years 
Because I've been sleeping on the couch for 2. 
Guess a bed in the living room will do 
Til I get my room back when my brother finally moves 
I have nothing against him just doesn't make sense to me how a grown man with a wife and child cannot manage to make any progression 
I take his life and I make it my life lesson. 
Go to school, get a job, and count all of my blessings. 
I'm not trying to make the same mistakes 
I learn from my surroundings 
And try to continue this race 
To a place where life is euphoric and not horrific
