    It's been a little while

    since I wrote an experience here and I wanted to write about something positive instead of the depressing ramblings I do from time to time. But like the title I am working on becoming a better me. My state of mind fluctuates from day to day life and still being homeless or...

    I Can Not Own What Is Not Mine

    I have begun to realize through self discovery ( and the support of so many here ), that I can not be everything for everybody. I have to take time for me. One of the things I gave up years ago was my music. I spent hours and hours practicing, composing; I had...

    Because It Matters!!!

    Who Am I?

    One thing that I believe is really important in life is to know who you really are.  Not someone that someone else wants you to be.  For the past 3 years I feel like I have lost who I really am.  I tryed to be the person he wanted me to be. ...
