    Knowledge

    There was a time in my life where I felt completely lost and I didn't know my place in this world, and when I prayed to God, it was like he was lost to me. But one day I sat in my room completely and utterly bored out of my mind. Only, I could have left my room and done...

    Wisdom Unknown

    This past fall, I started college and realized that I have deep thoughts and unorthodox views.  I didn't know what my thoughts were until my professor found me out and pointed it all out to me.  I thought I was crazy.  I still have a hard time seeing myself as...

    I Grew Up Too Fast.

    I have a rough home life. I was forced to take care of both my parents at a young age, and thus, never really got to be a kid. I have been socially awkward because of this because most teenagers honestly don't care about the 'real world'. They live in this bubble gum pink world...

    A Few Steps Ahead

    I don't think I am really smarter than anyone my own age.  At 25, the only thing I'm learning lately is how little I know.  When I was in college my professors were always impressed with my ability to see cause and effect.  Perhaps that is why I got a...

    Life, Test, Fate. :D

    I Feel As Though I Had To Grow Up Before My Time.

    It has proven to have been both a good and a bad experience for me to have become mature and wise beyond my years. It has proven to be bad in that it further increased the divide between myself and my own level of age group. I just ended up detached almost from the crowd, it...

    Too Complicated To Explain

    You would think I'm a dumb person because I live in the south or because of my age. We are not smart or dumb on where we live, how rich we are, or our age (well it accounts for some but not the point.) The only main reason why we are wise is because of our mistakes. I have made...

    Wise Like A Lion

    I am fifteen years old, and many other teenagers are often called "young and foolish" of course when you're young you don't understand certain concepts. Lots of teens (I hate to say it) don't have common sense and make the wrong choices, get into the wrong stuff, but I'm...

    I'm 18, Yet I'm Not Young.

    People assume that because I am 18, I don't know much. They see me as naive before they even here my opinions. They think I'm reckless just because many of my peers are. Well I am here to tell the world I am young, but not naive. I have learned so much in my (short) lifetime...

    "Looking Back At The World From A Different Perspective.."

    Starting since I was a kid... I've always seen things from a deep perspective. I questioned everything, and it all began from a little thing like talkin' back as a child, but if you think about it; it’s good that a kid is not that gullible. Oh but that's nothing, as I got older...

    When I was younger I didn't fit in very well with kids my age, especially during high school. I can't seem to understand why do teenagers act a certain way. I'm not saying I'm better than them because trust me, I have done a lot of foolish things in my life but I was somehow...

    Sort Of!

    I've always been told that I'm wise beyond my years, yet, I can't seem to apply that wisdom to my own life. I give helpful advise to my friends! I'm like the mother hen of my group! So why can't I figure out my own life?
