    Think Less, Do More

    Lately I've had way too much free time and I haven't been spending it very well. My mind will just wander into unknown territory and I can't seem to stay foused. I need something I can focus on, something to get my mind off of things. I've had way too much time to think and...

    Ginger Foutly Said It Best

    She chose to walk alone Though others wondered why Refused to look before her, Kept eyes cast upwards, Towards the sky. She didn't have companions No need for earthly things. Only wanted freedom, From what she felt were Puppet strings. She longed to be a bird. That she might fly...

    Where's My Path?

    I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. ~The Road Not Taken ~Robert Frost I wish I had the courage to take the road less travelled by. I wish I...

    .

    I want a future. I want to learn things, be respected, have a job that pays the bills and allows me to save some money. I want my parents to be proud and I want the people in my life to know that I can do the same things everyone else can do. Even though I seem weird and...

    I’ve found that the more friends I make the

    more I forget myself. I get so caught up in gaining their trust and keeping their friendship that I lose myself along the way. I’ve become this stranger to myself and I’m not even sure who I am anymore. Or what I’ve become. It’s not something I do purposefully. It just...

    Always!

    I'm always trying to find my way, in life. I am walking close to finding all of me, which I know may take a lifetime to do. Not to mention, I'm always changing and morphing as a person. My experiences and quest for knowledge (obsessively so), doesn't allow me to stay in one place...

    I Certainly Am.

    I am just a girl trying to find my way. I'm trying to find my way through life & it's not easy. In fact, it's very difficult, especially since most things are very difficult for me. It's hard to find my way through life when life is nothing more than an elusive dream. I have no...

    Want to Go With Me?

    After several crashes, some wrong exits, and a few detours I am back on this road called life and trying to find my way.  I have an upgraded navigator and I am ready to reach my destination.  Does anyone want to go with me?

    I recognise what men expect

    or want of me, it can be fun, but usually it is something to do along the way. Life is a long walk. It must be steady, and whatever happens I must continue each step, not being overcome by any single experience.

    Where Do I Belong?

    I know who I am, most of the time. I know my virtues and flaws, but I also know the parts of me that I can't figure if they are a virtue or a flaw. Sometimes they are both, but I never know which is better. I navigate my path daily, consciously searching for each step that...
