    "Old, but I'm not that old Young,

    but I'm not that bold I don't think the world is sold I'm just doing what we're told I feel something so right Doing the wrong thing I feel something so wrong Doing the right thing I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie Everything that kills me makes me feel alive"

    Even on a 'good day'.

    .. see friends, help others, talk to family members. Life is finally all slotting into place and I should feel excited. I should feel proud of myself for getting through the sea of horrible circumstances that life has thrown at me. But I'm still missing something. I'm still...

    I Don't Know What It Is

    Ever since I was in the third grade, being alone in my house was the greatest feeling in the world. There was no one to yell at me or talk to me like I'm idiot. I could just play music and video games without a care in the world. Even with people around I feel alone because I...

    The Broken Piece

    When I wake up everyday, it's the same routine. I get ready, go to school, come home, go to bed, wake up, repeat. I can't help but to feel like something is missing inside.. like there's something that's keeping me from being a whole. I'm not sure how to explain it. But it makes...

    That Missing Puzzle Piece

    Looking through the others posts, here, I can totally relate to how you're all feeling, as I feel it too. Being in a room full of people and feeling like I'm there alone. You're not the only ones who feel that way. There are just many of us afraid to come out and say it. I've...

    My Name Is Mike.

    My name is Mike. As I'm writing this, I’m just two months away from turning 32 years old. The idea to write this book has been on my mind for a few years now. I always wanted to share my observations as a fat man in a skinny man’s world, but I was never motivated enough to...

    I've Never Felt Whole

    I had a difficult childhood. I was forced to grow up way too fast, my mother was always jumping from mood to mood and I felt responsible for my younger siblings. I don't remember a time where I felt truly calm and cherished growing up. Things were always chaotic and I ended up...

    Yes, something is definitely missing in life.

    The reason for missing that is so obvious and known to me. Our wishes are like wild horses n we are saddled upon them n galloping wildly with no end in sight. There would be much happiness if I m content n it can only be achieved of I contain or limit rather minimise my wishes...

    I once stepped out of my comfort zone

    and expanded my reach. I grasped onto something that felt good. I tried to make it mine but it wasn't mine to be had. I had to let go. I've since then come back into my bubble, but now the area inside is bigger. Too big for simply me. It leaves me longing for something I can...
