    Mirror on the wall. Tell me what you see.

    Can't even recognize me? Can't blame me. Dazzling smiles turned to sour frowns. Bright eyes turned to dark stones. Can't blame me. This is what happens to good girls you see. Busy pencil in my hand turned to burning cigarette. Can't blame me. That's what happens when you play a...

    The Thing That Tells The 800 Pound Gorilla Where To Sleep

    I was 11 years old when I contracted HIV, I was diagnosed with AIDS at 16. The news was a relief, actually, after a couple of years of waiting around to find out and adjusting to adolescence while nursing bleeding ulcers, when my doctors had already known for a year and were just...

    Never Doubt/The Mind

    For the greatest self-discovery, one cannot doubt. It is irrelevant of what you come to know is true or not, for while your mind is working to discover everything is "true" since your mind perceives. There is no such thing as being crazy since the mind perceives everything and...

    Bittersweet Symphony

    I think I was born into this world with great cards to play with, not the best, just great. I had been given a family who loved me, some looks but not the finest. I had been given athletic genes, I have stamina, strength - but can't grow big muscles fast. I have been given a what...

    I Had A Dream

    It's complicated. I was young,

    open-minded, curious, alive. I figured out I was a therian. I kind of got to know myself more, I changed. I turned into this dark, sadistic, self loathing thing because I didn't know how to feel about myself. Also, everything that's happening in the world. War, starvation...

    Sharing A Life With Somone Is Far Different Than Them Completing Yours...

    I guess I changed when the realization that a single individual can't complete another person, finally kicked in. They can only make them better, improve them, or in the words of the lyrical "genius" that is Beyonce: upgrade them. I guess that's what they had in mind when they...

    I think it's better to be completely honest even if the truth is hard to say. I'd rather be hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie.
