    Inside I dance between striving

    for hope and rationally approaching doom. I've gotta believe in change. It exists, even if it's a rocky ride. I felt like giving up the last few days. It got to that tired point last night when I felt *that* way. So tired of trying only to inevitably run into a platter of the...
