    Insubstantial,inconsequential

    I feel so small in my skin,nothing I actually say or do or think would ever make a dent. I feel insubstantial even with those I am closest too. I feel flimsy in their eyes. Incapable. Weak, a novelty to amuse yourself with. I need to know others feel this too. I may feel...

    I feel small when I bear my soul,

    and you don't see it. I feel small when you laugh at my tears, I feel small when I sit alone in a dark room and confess my feelings on ep.

    I feel I have so much to say

    and that if I could put time and thought behind the process of saying how I felt to some, I could make my opinion matter. Yet sadly, I'm not quick on my feet, and my opinion is belittled because I'm not a parent or an adult with enough responsibilities to be taken seriously. In...
