    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...

    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...
