    Flipping The Switch

    I am... can be radical when something, someone damages me. Folks have two ways to react to havoc. Fight or Flight I don't know if this is right or wrong... really doesn't matter. I have this ability to flip a switch on command. A hot to cold, on or off, emotional to numb. I know...

    My life is not where I want it to be.

    I know what I want, but I don't know where to start. See I know what I want, but not who I am. I just know that whoever I am now I don't want to be this way or this person. I wish I could just know how to be who I want and not have to deal with this.

    I would like to change my life right now.

    I think the best way to do it is to take a picture of the present moment and put it in my pocket. I can look at it later.

    It would be nice to talk to the girl I was a

    Even if you did, even

    if YOU can, you would not change it, because it's still at hand. The only time the change occurs is when the day went wrong for years not because of human date but because of the air. You went to sleep and when you woke you dated letters that you provoked but read the date you...
