    My Mind Is Searching But I Can't Follow

    Have you ever felt like that? When you just want to climb out of a hole and go find where you really belong? My mind is wandering to every part of our planet...but I still don't know where to go. I've gone through so many stages. At least fifteen different places. But I guess...

    What Do You Do?

    As I sit here and listen to the movie Coraline play, I can't help but think of the events of the day.  Wow...really didn't mean for that rhyme to happen.  I left early this morning to visit my mother, who has now become a rather wealthy individual, and couldn't help but...

    Things change, places change,

    best friends change. My needs wants, priorities change. I m not sure who I am any more. I feel guilt, I want to be accepted. I like to feel the sense of belonging to a group where I know I can be supported

    I wonder where i have to go?

    To find a home? Where do i go to find a place where i can always be with friends, with a family of my own. Where must i go so the moments will last... For small periods of time, i always can have those fleeting moment of joy, but it eventually all disappear.

    I'm not searching for somewhere to belong.

    I believe I'm in the right place right now. But being here seems wrong to other people. I'm alone. But this is where I feel I belong.

    Be Yourself

    Be yourself. But when being you is a stranger. You don't know yourself since you were lost in being with someone else- a feeling of feeling lost in a world can be overwhelming

    I look outside everyday

    and nothing i see is appealing to me. Cars constantly driving by, the air stinks, and there is no sign of nature anywhere. Im tired of living in this concrete jungle. I want to go somewhere where the air is clean and the water is pure. A place where I can just be me.
