    Maybe the journey isn't

    so much about becoming anything, maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

    I gaze upon the verdant fields

    that mark my life, Lush hues to most...but gray to me. The shadows long begin to creep, Darkening my trail...blotting me. My compass failed, my heart is lost, I shiver against the chill tonight, I see the smiles of the ones I love, Who are blind to me...and my fight. My mind...

    Though I may be directionless like many other

    people challenge yourself to confront your demons and to be honest with yourself. Only then can you give yourself a fighting chance at living again. Not a guarantee at living but a chance.

    I Hate My Life... Sometimes I wish I could just

    lay in bed and not get up. Let myself wither to the point someone cares enough for me and comes and saves me, to show me affection and nurture me. I crave so much love. I'm upset with the world I live in because I came to suffer. The world has so much to offer, and it seems I...

    My Last.....

    I started college about a year and a half ago and was beyond excited. High school was hell mostly because of my over zealous mother who instead of allowing me to embrace our faith my way forced her God fear upon me. I was sheltered to an extreme. And idk uhow but I end up on the...

    Fragile And Broken

    I lie awake into another nightmare. And I can’t find a place to lay my head. I tried to close my eyes but sorrow keeps me awake. It creeps inside slowly that I don’t even notice the tears starts flowing. I tried to make it go away, but still misery finds a way. There’s...

    I feel like a complete failure

    and I feel that I will fail at whatever I try. I cannot find my purpose in life. I feel like I do not have one. I think about just ending it. I feel that I am a waste of space anyhow.

    Lost Expectations

    I have been exploring the idea that happiness can only be achieved when we have no expectations.  I believe all the pain we have in life is from not getting what we expected. Think about it: Lost Love: You never lose love.  You simply lose possession of that person...

    I sometimes think about ending it!. My mother & brother are the only things that stop me, if I lost them I really don't know what I would do. I've no idea what to do next & I would like to enjoy life for once. I've never asked anyone for help before as I'm afraid

    and dissatisfied... Today is one of them. Not necessarily because something has happened to make it a "bad day", just days where nothing satisfies some yearning inside me. I know I "shouldn't" feel this way by many standards; I have a good job, nice home, and a good family...
