    Children Of The Stars.

    Where Can I Escape? How?

    On the deepest most fundamental level imaginable, I feel so incredibly distant from the world. I am not of this world. I am an observer of it all unfolding before my eyes. Everything seems surreal and backward. I know I'm different in an extremely deep way and it leaves me empty...

    I feel like I just don't belong on this earth. Someone somewhere is playing a joke on me and laughing their ***** off, watching me fumbling and falling on Earth.  Its ridiculous how out of place I feel.
