    I've been in this school

    where all the rich kids go. I don't consider myself rich but I was just thankful that my mom could afford to send me there. I wasn't called the typical rich kid because I would always walk to school while my classmates would arrive in nice, shiny cars. I'm in college now and...

    Pains, sadness, humiliations,

    ridiculed and belittled are the type of scars that i've been keeping inside me. Yes, there's someone who knows about them but doesn't know how deep they really are. Covering myself w a mass to hide these scars from other people is not really that helpful. I'm just fooling...

    I hate myself. I hate my temptation.

    I hate how I allow myself to be so fragile. I hate how I let people take advantage of me. I hate how everyone think that I'm this great person who's perfect and I'm not. I hate how I break so easily. I hated every time I let myself cry. I hate how I always messed up and how...

    Too Many

    As months go by I find I have more scars than I could imagine. As time go on new fears, anxieties and doubts all surface from within. Scars festering beneath my skin. Only I know they exist and only I can feel their irritation and pain.

    From an early age I noticed something wasn't

    right with me. I was bullied at school and I guess I looked different to the other kids. My bullying went on for a few years and in that time I admit I did try and end it all with pills. I was so scared and lonely. In my last year of school my bullies gave me a choice either...

    As a child I had red hair
