    I'm Always The Last In Line..

    I feel like everybody is surpassing me. I feel like I am intellectually behind eveyone my age. I'm not up to par. It's sad how far behind I am .  I just feel like I should be put into a whole until the end of time.

    Self Attainment

    Reconsidering the tremendous weight placed on other people's opinion of me. I become more free. I switch my center of gravity around. It makes more sense this way, I become more free. Hate me and disrespect me, I beg of you to mock me infront of me and behind my back...
