    I Am Just The Guy Over There.....

    I am at a point where I feel my life is at a crossroads. I have made certain decisions in my life that would warrant some punishment but sometimes I feel like I have had the judge throw the proverbial book at me. I like to think I am an educated genuine person to be around but I...

    But I'M Not Gonna Be A Little BìTch About It

    When you consider the fact that our universe has a virtually infinite number of planets, galaxies, and solar systems within it, Earth seems minuscule by comparison. Comparing the Earth to the size of the universe is like comparing an ant to the size of the Earth – and we humans...

    A Letter to Friends

    I wrote this letter to several of my friends..... I sat down last night and I realy began to evaluate who I am and what I've become. Most of you can remember me pre-Junior year, I was a vivacious, outgoing, optimistic young man. Very rarely did you see me with a frown on my face...

    I Am Insignificant

    Really, the only people I may be significant to are my daughters who may still need me right now but not for long as they are 12 and 14.  I'm not a doctor or hold some other job that impacts anyone else in a significant way.  I'm a stay at home mother and work...

    Just A Spec Of Light.

    The planet Earth. It's nothing more but a spec of light. A very small one. Smaller. Smaller! You see? We're insignificant. Whatever we do, it has no impact. We're microscopic. We just can't break the habit of feeling geocentric. We think we have an impact on everything, but we...

    I am the closest thing to nothing.

    Just a breathing,eating excreting pile of meat. We all are actually. But at least I have accepted it. I dont hide it behind religion or some bigger purpose. When I die my perception, my emetions, my ability to appreciate, to love, to hate all go away. It doesnt matter which God...

    He only talks to me when he's intoxicated.

    He crosses my mind day and night, but I only cross his when he's high. I wonder if we had something, and if I ruined it. I wonder if perhaps I had done something differently, I would be more significant to him - and not just entertainment when he's not in a conscious state of...

    Strength Of Insignificance

    Life is paradoxical. It has been said the understanding of ones relationships with God, others and our environment is defined "humility". Considering just how little my contribution impacts the greater contribution of the combined, is both awesome and humbling. To do so provides...

    Invisible.

    I have done nothing with my life. I'm young, I know. I still have years and years to live, knock on wood. I feel so, so lost. I have had so many people cycle in and out of my life and I haven't made a lasting impression on a single person. Nobody calls. Nobody wants to just spend...

    Just A Nobody

    I came into this world and was abused and misused. What I can't understand is why that's what I still want. People say I'm pretty. People say I'm smart but, I don't believe any of them. To me I look odd and stick out as different from the rest. I don't quite fit in.

    Compared to Everything Else

    When I think about all of the things that other people have done I just feel like I'm nothing. There's just so many people out there doing so much more than I am that I'm not really anything compared to all that.
