    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm A Werewolf

    Sometimes it skips a generation, like it did with my mom. My sisters all have it. In my wolf form, I have grey and silver fur. My eyes have always been a weird green color, sort of glowing. I used to only change on the full moon, but now I can change any time I want, and it's...

    I Changed Many Times... For The Worst Most The Time

    I changed when she lied to us about the divorce, then changed again dressed in confusion when I found out the truth... I changed when I found the truth that drugs can distort your reality. I changed when I found out I was a drug addict, getting high wasn't for fun it was to live...

    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...

    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...
