    The Mock Turtle's Story

    `HE might bite,' Alice cautiously replied, not feeling at all anxious to have the experiment tried. `Very true,' said the Duchess: `flamingoes and mustard both bite. And the moral of that is--"Birds of a feather flock together."' `Only mustard isn't a bird,' Alice...

    Walls

    As the walls close in around you, you can't breath. Your hands start to sweat, your heart feels like its going to pound out of your chest. You have nowhere to hide. The knots in the pit of your stomach tighten. Every muscle in your body aches. You stare into the eyes of your...

    And This Is Why...

    As much as I hate rejection (and I do) I can't bear acceptance with conditions attached.  I can't stand pretending only because I've learned the lesson of "they always find out who you are eventually" and it only hurts to pretend until they do.

    I Am Who I Say I Am

    Some may think I am a fake and what I will tell you, you are your own person and you have your own judgement and you can believe whatever you wish.  I know who I say I am and I don't need to explain myself to anyone.

    Take Me Or Leave Me.

    For better or worse I don't want to be somebody else and dont pretend to be.  I am what I am, nothing more. Take me as I am or leave me.  It's that simple.
