    Not Much Of A Choice

     My mom is the definition of a workaholic, my parents are divorced so I dont see my dad much, I'm an only child, I avoid a lot of my family, and my friends are oblivious. I've spent 95% of my time outside of school alone since I was 8 or 9. On time off from school I stay...

    My Real Me

    I always feel alone. When i walk around, i feel alond. When im with friends, i feel alone. I may not look alone, but i feel alone. I feel like this everyday. At times i just drag that feeling away, but it finds its way back and it wraps around me.

    Scrooge: A Warning.

    My life.. It was a quietness that is not good or bad. Picture a plain sky on a cloudy day. I am walking on an icy pond. Kicking up snow. Headed towards barren trees. Reminds me of purity that I lost long ago. I'm equipped to survive, thick boots, coat, & skin. Enduring cold winds...

    Sadness And Quiet Are Partners

    Sadness, being alone,then you'll be quiet and be out of place. It's always like that when I'm in the crowd but I just smile and don't say a word. I'm not really a quiet person so it reaaly disturb me when I'm trying to be quiet and not speaking.

    Alone In the Crowd

      I love live music. Rock, Rap, loud and hard. There is nothing better than being on the floor, right next to the stage at a concert.  There are moments though, when I look around, and I see so many couples, dancing, singing, enjoying each other. I start thinking...
