    Not Done Yet.

    There are people out there who push me away from death. They want me to live. They will me to keep going, no matter how tired I am. Some of them have no idea that they are my motivation. I see their faces in the blade of my knife. I hear their voices. I can't hurt them by leaving...

    I seem to have given up.

    I no longer dream or plan, just going through the motions. I want my spirit back, to live, enjoy. Feeling so old.
