    If you take a look at Kat Williams,

    his persona on stage is totally different then the one you see in interviews. Everyone wants to be around the stage guy. Most comedians are cynical. Marlon Wayans, another comedian once explained that comedy is an art-form that comes from ones struggles and pain. Which makes a...

    Every year of my life it gets worse.

    It hurts more and more. The only changes in life are that life gets worse. Trying to find a meaning in all this is pointless. Need temporary sanity, but nothing comes to mind. The darkness surrounds me time and time again. Some times it goes away, but it lingers around every...

    Winter always takes a toll on my depression.

    It's the lack of sunlight that does it more than anything. I used to live in Alaska, this time of the year we only had about 3 or 4 hours of sunlight, if you could call it that... I would call it more of a faint glimmer of light skimming across the south horizon for a few hours...

    I'm so sick of letting time pass me by

    and just floating around in it because of the state of mind I'm in. Instead of actually LIVING life and making things happen, I'm too tired, down and anti-social to be even bothered to do anything...and time is slipping through my fingers.

    Hope?

    Loneliness is one of the more constricting emotions I experience. It’s the emptiness of being invisible in a room full of people. It’s the desolate feeling of struggling without stirring compassion. I see people move forward with their lives and I see those who are involved...

    At the end of the day no one gives a ****.

    Not friends, not family, everyone is selfish and self-absorbed. They don't really care, the only thing people give a **** about is their own ***. I feel like I have no one. No place to escape, no arms to run into. Nothing.
