    I don't know what happened,

    or where it all changed. I was very close to God and now; I'm simply not. I need to find my way back and I need God back in my life, I just don't know how to do it.. Or where to start.

    I can't seem to find my way these days.

    I'm really alone. I am finding out my friends are not true. I am always there for them but they are never there in return. I seem to be the black sheep of my family. I work hard for all I have. I am humble and kind. I speak the truth as much as possible. I hardly ever cancel. I...

    The euphoria that I once felt about coming out

    Trans now eludes me. I struggle to find direction or meaning. My life is beginning to look like it must be this OR that, but I want this AND that. I feel a sense of withdrawing back into the darkness of the closet. The darkness of self-deception. My fortress of solitude. I...

    There's no path for me to walk on to lead me to

    the right way. I cannot seem to find the person I once was. This person I am now has gotten so lost. I've made turns, cut through the alleys. Yet I end up coming back to them. Where am I? WHO am I? Do I have anything to come back to? There's no GPS to lead me to the correct...
