    I Don'T Remember Crying

    Watching someone die in front of me was honestly, something I never thought I'd witness in my life. I remember waking up early morning and being told that we need to go to the hospital immediately. I remember walking very slowly. Dreading every step. I remember wanting to just...

    Death is all around and the walls start closing

    in. Is it because of the things I've done, all of my past sins? Is it because I quit praying to the Lord who never answered? Or if He did, He only ever brought me yet another cancer? I'm not angry with He, Who Just Might Be; I do not deny his existence. But I will not put my...

    I lost my dad two years ago

    and it hasn't been easy at all ever since. Recently, I have been thinking about him and I feel so depressed. I hate the feeling of feeling empty without a father.
