    On the Outside Looking In

    I've never really belonged anywhere. My whole life I've seen people make connections with others that I could never really fathom. As a teen I was always bored by the things other teenagers did. I always wished that I could close my eyes and end up somewhere else. This world is a...

    I Don't Fit In Anywhere

    I'm a square peg in a round hole. No wonder I'm battered around the edges.

    Into the Wild

    I feel like Christopher McCandless.  Except minus the balls necessary to do what he did.  I would love to drop everything I have and just go.  Go out into the world and see as much as I can.  I would like to find a nice plot of land, maybe up in Canada, and...

    I Dont Fit In Anywhere

    I dont fit in anywhere or with anything. I can't be defined and i dont follow set rules or ideas. I find myself looking out at the world as an observer and an outsider. I am an outsider of the outsiders, i dont fit in with the outcasts or with any other type of sub culture that...

    The Modern World...no Thank You.

    I don't feel as if I belong in this era. I feel like I sould have been in like the lord of the rings books or something. Some world like that, where I could be truly free to live in the true wild and go where I please and be who I please. I feel like I should have been on some...

    Religion on the rails

    I just want to leave it all, my ****** job, my broken home, my wasted college classes. Just leave it all and wait at the closest railroad crossing. Wait for that train to Slow down and jump on. Just go where ever its going. There's no future for me here I can feel it. I wasted to...

    I Definitely Have Felt This Way Since I Became Conscious......

    Since I can remember I always felt as though I didnt belong. The world was fast paced and I always felt "in the way".... From the moment of birth my older sister antagonized me poking my eyes pulling my hair... As a baby.. As I got older she became more abusive to be sure I...

    Not long ago, I tried this life.

    After ten years of living in a kind of wetsuit. Rubber over my sensitive skin, making everything feel far and distant. Foggy goggles covering my eyes, obscuring and blurring my otherwise perfect vision. A hood over my head, making everything sound muffled and muted. Gloves on my...

    Have you ever gone outside in the dead of night,

    looked up into the night sky and just deeply pondered everything. I come from a place where everyone around me is in the same religion. I'm pretty young, and at the same time, I feel like I'm not. Sure, I'm in a 14 year old body, but my mind and essence is just simply too wise...

    It's almost as if I'm merely existing.

    Wandering through some place between my mind and reality. Forced to carry on even though I'm uncertain why.

    I Have Nothing Else To Contribute To This World

    I am completely miserable. I am very unhappily married and have a 17 yr old son and a 13 yr old daughter. Our family started out reasonably happy. We had enough money to pay our bills, go on an occasional vacation, and bought a house. I worked evenings and took care of my kids...

    Always & Never

    I've always felt alone. I've never felt like I belonged anywhere. People don't understand me, I don't even understand myself. I fake smiles and laughs everyday. I feel so different from everyone around me. I wish I could be better, I wish that I could change, but I'm just so...

    Praying For Apocalypse

    I am reminded of this every single day. We are brought up to believe that in order to be a valid human being we must get a job and live as everyone else. That your job is your identity. I, for one, see no point in dedicating any portion of my time to doing something that I don't...

    Kind of Like a Broken Angel

    My soul is too innocent to be in this world. All I have ever wanted was to love and be loved. I was never the type to start problems with anybody, or disrespect anyone else. I was the ultimate good girl. But my heart and soul is now tainted half with darkness. I fight myself...

    Am I Really From Here? Scotty! Beam Me Up!

    To be sensitive in this day and age of rage, lunatics and know it alls, can be very depressing. No good deed goes unpunished they say? And a million other sayings to tell one that if you try and help others you're weak! To admit you're wrong , you' re weak ! And so forth...
