    Unforgiven

    I have asked God to forgive me. He has answered my prayers. Why is it I can not forgive myself. If only God's forgiveness would wipe away memories that are forever unforgiving.

    This world is not a blessing.

    It's not a miracle to wake up every day and know you're still alive. It's actually a curse. A curse to know you must go on, because there's not a damn thing you can do about it. Of course you can take the easy way out. There are many options. Just do it and get it over with. But...
