    Where Is The Authenticity?

    Where is the authenticity? I am looking for the real. I am looking for what it really means to be the human animal. Is it creativity? Is there creativity? So many people walk around in other's guises. Are people even genuine anymore? I have always been my own person...

    I'M Not Perfect

    I'm still young, a teenager. Who didn't grow up with the adults today. I grew up in a messed up society. Of course I am not going to be perfect, no one is. Telling me to go listen to better music with words that aren't filthy just does nothing for you and I. I don't live to...

    For Better Or For Worse

    Meaning: What you see is what you get. The one thing that never fails to bring me to anger is people who tell me what to do. Especially ones that are younger. I will literally run circles around them. And they will promptly hear the words: MAKE ME.  Another is "Smile." If I don...

    From Me To Them And Back Again.

    As a child I was blessed with parents who were very laid back, and thus I have fond memories of the mere enjoyment in the experience of life. I'm not saying my life was a breeze as my dad had anger issues and my mom drank a lot. But in terms of values or world views, both my...

    Myself.

    I used to follow crowds and pretend to like things my friends did even if I didn't. I never made my own choices I let others make them for me. Something happened to make me see that I wasn't even myself anymore, I was some clone of the girls around me, so I changed. I am my own...
