    Will It Ever End?

    After 37 years you would think I would be able to accept things for what they are. That's far from the truth. It seems like no matter how good I have it, I feel empty. Something is always missing. I could go on about my child hood without a father or my ex wife, but...

    I'm on the brink. I'm about to turn 50

    and it's becoming increasingly difficult to continue on day to day. I have no one in my life that I can talk to. I have so much darkness inside and nowhere to let it out. I think more and more about how I can go on like this but there is no end in sight.
