    I am a god. No really, I am. I create, and I destroy. I only know for sure that I exist.

    Relationship Vs. Freedom

    I had a situation today where I ran into a man that I care deeply about eating breakfast with another woman. It stung me at first because I didn't expect it. I don't know if the lady was his friend or not. It was none of my business to concern myself with. Anyways, as I walked...

    Epiphany

    Throughout my existance on earth, I have loved deeply, cared strongly, and shared limitless. When desperation harbors those close to me they know who to call for rescue. I am the savior, warrior, and protector that lurks around to the aid of those in oppression. Yet, when the war...

    A Social Epiphany

    I realized I am an assassin,

    if not a sniper for the military. Which branch military I haven't decided yet, but I may be a sniper. With every passing moment, I slip between different personalities and it sucks that it happens, but I don't care I know I'm an assassin.

    I sat in my room intoxicated the other night.

    I felt nervous, agitated, and more or less at unease. It almost seemed to be written on everything I looked at, the floor, the door, everything. What made me so worried, I wondered? I know now that it's because my worries were the very things that worried me. I got so concerned...

    I realized this a while back.

    I have a friend who makes me feel about myself at times. This friend seems to have the necessity of bragging about everything and making those around feel miserable. She can be a good friend, but she can also be quick to judge. She makes me feel like 2nd place looser. So close...

    So, my father and mother were talking about this person, and a part of their conversation interested me.    Dad: So, I heard from *this person's name I never heard of* after a long while.  Mom: Oh, how is he? Dad (laughing): He's lost his mind.  Mom: what did he do...

    Years ago, I was trapped in a very low place, emotionally. I went to bed every night, praying not to wake up the next day. I couldn't bring myself to commit suicide because I couldn't do that to my family. But, I really hoped it would just happen naturally, so I could have the...

    Awakening

    There isn't a reality in a dream; and yet while we dream we believe in a reality. We believe in the reality of the things we see in the dream. After we wake up we recognise the falseness of the dream; and we laugh at ourselves. When a man wakens to reality he realises in that...
