    Life...

    I've become everything I swore I'd never become. The thought of me drinking never went through my head. Low and behold some odd years later here I sit with a bottle at my side to comfort me and put me to bed. Smoking weed isn't bad, but at this point other drugs are looking...

    That Could Have Been Me

    When I was younger, I was brilliant. I used to get outstanding grades and shining report cards. I didn't have many friends, but I was always happy. My teacher's all loved me and thought I was a joy to teach. But after I went to Comprehensive School, it all went down hill. I...

    The world taught me everything,

    but I wasn't listening The world showed me all it's beauty, but I wasn't paying attention The world gave me the sun, but I hid in the shadows. The world gave me my smile, but I chose not to wear it. The world gave me my life and I gave the world another disappointment.

    It sucks. Staying up all night wondering

    why you're not good enough, looking in the mirror and having tears rolling down your face, being around your friends and feeling like your not welcome. Depression is probably the worst. And nothing it's harder when you have feeling for someone who makes you feel worthless. He...
