    Today I was about to cry in front of my class.

    I tried to hide it by taking off my glasses and wiping my eyes but one boy saw me. Luckily he just asked if I was okay and didn't tell anyone. Everyone thinks I'm happy that I'm all by myself, but I'm not. I wish I had friends that actually like me and don't laugh at me...

    You think he's what makes the sun shine,

    but darling, he's not. He's what makes your eyes tear and your cuts bleed. He's the thoughts in your head that rip you apart and, my god, I know you love him but he's killing you.

    By Declaring We Are Weak, We Become Weak, We Do Not Become Better.

    Whatever you dream and think of, you create. If it is hell, you die and see hell. If it is evil and Satan, you get a Satan. If ghosts, you get ghosts. Whatever you think, that you become. If you have to think, think good thoughts, great thoughts. This taking for granted that you...

    No! I definitely don't think I'm special enough

    to be cared about and actually why would anyone care? My parents, the ones who were meant to love me unconditionally, have given me away so where am I suppose to look for a refuge? I'm just a thing that came up and they couldn't get rid of me.
