    I don't know what I want in life.

    I don't know what I want right now.All I know is that i'm hurting so much inside and it's eating me, and one day there won't be any of me left......All it takes is a beautiful fake smile to hide my injured soul...They will never notice how broken I really am

    I'll never forget the day.

    ..I can still hear the words echo like yesterday. Me and the girls are just strays dropped off on your doorstep that nobody wanted for you to deal with. That men would just look at us as his trash and wonder what was wrong with us and why he didn't want us....the next day I found...

    I've been through hell

    and back in my small amount of years living on this earth. I told some guy my story today and he told me to kill myself. I can't stop crying.

    I get sad this time of year.

    Sad for the trees, the sun, the desires that slowly quite down to embers. I feel oppressed by the life I lead in winter. I can't escape to the mountains. I can't do dangerous things. I feel risky and itchy. fidgeting my way around town like a glitchy video game. The city puffs...

    Like many others, there will be some hurt I

    will carry for life. The hurt can not be forgotten or erased. It's not the hurt that seeks or gives forgiveness Only the hurt I have learned to accept.

    Growing up with insecurities,

    feeling like the world would be a bit better without me, I definitely know what it feels like to hurt inside. I'm a master at seeming fine on the outside, but feeling horrible on the inside.

    I have spent much of my life in pain.

    Not physical, but emotional and mental agony. So if there is a anyone out there, which I'm sure there is, who's in pain and feels alone- please know that you're not. And I'm here to talk.

    Even when I'm Happy I feel it inside me.

    The pain that won't go away. It is in me, hiding, waiting. I'm like a prisoner to my own pain. I can't escape it. One wrong move, one rude comment, staying in my thoughts for just a moment too long and it's over I've lost the fight again today. The Pain Wins. I Guess Tomorrow Is...

    Hurting Because Of Others

    Constantly. It's like my whole life as been like this, at least of what I can remember. Prior to about 4th grade/10 years old it wasn't so bad. But once I became so much more aware it seems, at least to me, that people go out of their way to hurt me. I think I am a good person...

    No one heals them self by wounding another.

    He must be suffering more than I am for he wounds me and hurts me daily. I refuse to do it back. I won't. I actually want to heal.

    Sometimes I feel like a drunken soul,

    stumbling along and wondering where I'm headed. I look back and all around, nothing seems familiar. Although the memories may play tricks on my mind, the present does not. I consider it all lessons learned for a reason.
