    It Is My Mouth

    No matter how hard I try, I regularly manage to say something that hurts the people I care about. The harder I try to avoid saying things that hurt the more it seems to hapen. What really bites is when I manage to hurt someone I love and I don't even know what I did. I tried...

    I hate it. I do. I don't know

    why I do it though. I'm not a very good person. I'm really negative and I brush off anyone that offers me help on anything. I'm trying to find a job so I can save a lot of money and move, hopefully, somewhere far away. It's not fair to my family and friends that they have to...

    I always seem to hurt the people I Love the most, I don't mean to do it. No matter what I do or say, I try to be the best I can be. I hope that one day I can make them all happy and not hurt them anymore.
