    Life is so confusing.

    ...scratch that.... The world is confusing there are so many people being hurt in wars, schools, in their own homes, etc. and I don't understand why.. Why do people have to be so cruel? Why can there just be peace in the world? Why can people believe what they want to believe...

    Don't Always

    There's many things I understand as much as there's parts I don't always understand.  There's things worth the effort knowing or trying to understand and the other parts, sometimes, I think it is better not to or just letting it be.
