    I Think I'm More Goofy When I'm Nervous

    But I do cover up goofy with sadness because it sometimes a lot of the times cheer me up. I act like such like a dork. Not so much lately on for the fact that I'm growing up. I'm don't really worry about so much like I used to and my self esteem is going up. Now it's like when...

    Reed In The Wind

    Sometimes you billow wither the wind may blow. Sometimes you snap in half. I feel lost, sad and alone. I put on a brave face for everyone. In real life, I'm the "go-to woman," the one with all the answers. I don't have all the answers. I don't even have the answers for my...

    Silly.

    There is something about making others laugh and smile that makes you forget for just a moment that you are unhappy, or that something is wrong. For a moment it takes the weight off of your shoulders, and of you make someone else smile often enough, it is almost impossible to...

    Tears of a Clown

    To see me, most people would think my life was great, I'm always dorking out on something, I smile a lot and I laugh a lot.  Inside though there are storms raging.  Only a very select few people know what's really going on behind the smile.  I don't have much and I...

    Question...

    "What's the biggest lie you've ever told?" I smile don't I? That't my lie. I laugh don't I? That is my lie. I dance don't I? That's my lie. I play don't I? That is my lie. I said "i'm fine" didn't I? That's my lie. But above all I told you I don't feel, and that was a lie.

    When Ity's Not The Crying Sad.

    It takes a lot to make me cry, and when I do I cover it up with anger, but when I am sad and not crying I usually act goofy just so people don't know. I don't like people know when I'm sad. They try copmforting me, and giving me advice. It kinda makes me mad because I know...
