I Am a Thief

    In theory, I am a thief.

    I haven't stolen from a friend to my knowledge but I've shamelessly stolen from my folks on a couple occasions when I was a stupid teenager. I regret that. I started stealing when I was a teen, but it's always been for that thrill, that rush. The skills gained got me through...

    I Steal All The Time

    I don't feel bad about it and I don't know why. I can steal from my mom, dad, or my brothers, my grandparents, and I've stolen from all of them before. Money, miscellaneous things, and a lot of it has no value at all so i don't even know why I steal it!

    I Used To Be - Well,

    it was an art thief to be exact, it was way back in 2009 on Deviantart when I set up my Drmusic2 account. My problem was that I was new to it and I wasn't exactly good at anything artistic apart from writing. So I kind of made the stupid mistake of going against the TOS and...

    I take from them not

    because I want to, but because I can. The remorseless thrill of taking from the unwary is a gift unto itself; the best of which comes from stealing from a friend. Watching as they scramble to find their poached items is as much a joy as it is to pinch the item myself. Perhaps...

    that don't have any direction. I say go professional. There's a lot of people out there that need your skills. The Robin Hood thing is looking better and better everyday in this lawless world.

    Theft is a moral dilemma

    that doesn't belong in discussions of morality. Thieves are not malicious, they are not violent or confrontational nor are they passive. We lurk where no one looks, waiting for that moment where we can get away without ever being there. We beat the system in one of the most...

    I am a thief and I cannot find another thief to

    love. I wander the dark alleys and dangerous parts of town after midnight, thinking that they will try to rob me, but it never happens. I know they are out there. I want them more than all the treasures I have stolen.

    Thief

    If I would be a thief, I would be a sucky one which I would get caught for sure. A person can leave tons of their money in their homes or their valuables and never will I steal any of it.  I also would never go snoop around if left alone in their home.  This is how good I am...
