    I'm never happy. I mean yea I'm happy,

    I Feel Very Restless At Times When I Write Down Something.

    I feel very restless at times when I write something.There is sudden rush of emotions. I am overpowered by my emotions. Writing is not a release for me in these times. I don't feel at peace with myself .

    The Restless Times.

    There's a restlessness that lives in me, and it asks 'what are you striving for, who are you pining for, why are you trying so hard!' And I just lie there and chant 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'...until sleep overwhelms me. At times I have the persistent, niggling...

    It's the "Tiger" in me. The Chinese say that it is very difficult to have a daughter born under the sign of Tiger. They are hard to marry off. Too aggressive. I agree.
