    I Used To Be Someone.

    I suppose technically I still am someone, but I don't think this someone is really worth being. I used to sing. I used to sing every day. I sang for thirty years. I loved it. I don't sing anymore. Once in a while I start, just to try and pull myself up by my bootstraps...then I...

    Change

    So little time has passed, and again I feel like I've changed so much. I wonder how much more I'll end up changing... Looking back I find myself to be silly, and joyful but yet as I age and live on I feel the joyful bliss slipping away but by bit. I'm starting to understand why...

    My best friend told me the other day

    that I used to be so confident and happy and fun and positive. I try my hardest to be that way with people and at school, but inside I'm fragile and weak and very pessimistic. My thoughts are dark and twisted; I'm a screwed up person. Everything's better as a kid, which is why I...

    Looking back on who I was

    as a child, I wouldn't be proud of myself now, in some aspects. I've kept a lot of morals I had but have broken a lot too. I guess growing older does that to someone. You go looking and experience whatever it is, and enjoy it. Maybe it's maturity as well. The style of music I...

    Why do people- especially parents say

    that they support you in everything you do but the minute you start to change, they're like "you're not the same person any more- I don't like this side of you." If you don't want me to change then just say so but that won't change the fact that I'm going to keep evolving into...

    Seeing you in pain makes me die a bit inside. It's such a helpless feeling to know there isn't really anything I can do to help. The sadness you let slip about how much you hate what's happened to you. In so many ways you're no longer the person I fell in love with but there's...
