    I Know Why But I Can't Explain!

    I know everything there is to be learnt in life and that I'm as wise as Socrates. Do you know why? Nobody does. It's because I know that I can't learn everything and that no man can. This could be why. The fact that I will never know. I'm only 14 but I've fought depression and...

    Hmm.

    Today I've been pretty sad, no real idea why. I've had a rough week last week, and I guess I'm still recooperating. I feel like being very close to someone, and maybe crying. Oh well. Stiff upper lip. lol

    If you find yourself with someone whom you feel only wants you but wouldn’t move heaven and earth to keep you, then move on. You’re not a thing and you deserve better.
