    Why should you be afraid?

    I am a duality of peoples; cold

    and passionate; smart and stupid; light and dark. I have failed so completely to climb aboard a unified picture of myself that I simply present a persona to the world. Warm, friendly and goofy, none of which is true, except perhaps the last part, my inner child stubbornly...

    This photo I took during a not

    so fun time in life. I am afraid of my own darkness. I have a temper that I can't control and a sadness so great. I lose all control. And that is what I'm truly afraid of.... Losing control. When your smile is stolen from you. Do you hide behind a lie. One so wide it reaches...
