    I Gave It My All

    I love him and I always will but I need to let him go. He's going to find himself while I sit in this unfamiliar waiting room for my friend to come back. He claims we aren't friends anymore but really what would we be? I waited for 2yrs for the past to be let go of and then we...

    Unnecessary Existance

    Someone said they feel like everyone would be better if they were gone.  Not me.  I don't think it matters if I'm here or if I'm not.  If I suddenly moved to Antarctica tomorrow, after a few weeks some people would notice my absence, but they'd soon get over it...

    I have always been the one in my family that was different. I was the sickly one. The one that strayed away from the norm. Never did drugs. Partied more and was more rebellious. Got into trouble and had psych probs. I lived a life a little bit more on the edge than was expected...

    My Life

    I always felt I was the unwanted person in my life. The fact people never stayed my friends, I was placed in foster care, family not giving me support during hard periods of my life, is evidence of being unwanted.
