    Or Unimportant

    Sometimes, when I look around and see the sky, calm and blue above the immense amount of people rushing from place to place, it makes me realize how big and complicated the world is, and how little it would matter if I wasn't there. I sometimes feel like I'm being swallowed by...

    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 always wanted to be someone big,

    until I realized that someone bigger always takes over in the end. I've never been much of a leader outside of group projects in class. How lame. Why can't I be the person who is in student council or the person with the amazing internship every single year or the amazing...
