    It Starts With One Thing..

    Like most of generation-X my parents were emotionally distant and i was raised by the television. I lost my way a long time ago, about age 16, when i stopped trying, trying to find answers to why I let people walk over me, why i had to be such a "nice guy" to girls and why I didn...

    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.

    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...

    8 Years

    I remeber how it started. I saved up $2700 dollars to move out and go to college. My parent in need of financial support asked me to stay at home. They assured me it was just for six months. I went to college and worked 40 hours a week and collected financial aid. It never seemed...

    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...

    Once upon a time I was going to be a superhero.

    Then a regular hero. Then just a person. None of that seems to be working out. So now I'm going to finally become the super villain I've said I'll be for so long. I will have henchmen, a volcano, a nemesis, a cool outfit, a menancing laugh, piles of gold, ladies, some drugs...

    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...
