    My Need

    So much of my life has been spent in the dark. Hiding from outside life, hiding from my past, my fears, guilt that eats you up. Something I noticed when I would be in the midst of some deep dark depression was the need to cocoon myself away. Locked in my bedroom. Once I realized...

    Wrong Place For It Though

    After this installment of my education is finished, I am breaking free from the land that seems to get the majority of God's tears and find somewhere blessed by sunshine. At present, am considering seriously Vancouver
