    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.

    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.

    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...

    All the time. And even

    if it was not about me, I feel hurt about what other people has to face. Yet at the end of the day, this kid( who is a beggar) once told me... hardships are not given by God to those who cannot handle them. Then I'll be okay again. :>

    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.

    No one heals them self by wounding another.
