    Life's Failures

    All my life I've never felt that I've fit in with anyone. I've never had a real friend before the age of 16. Not even a playmate in school. I was an outcast, made fun of by students around me. Fast-foward to my father's death when I was 16, I tried to fill the void with a girl...

    I'll keep screwing up,

    I'll keep failing, I'll ruin stuff and I'll constantly keep making matters worse... But I'll do it with a huge stupid grin on my face, and laughing so hard it hurts. ...that's just me trying to be optimistic .... It seemed so much more doable in my head..
