    I feel alone like everyone in the house are

    against me. Every time I go home it's like I can't even find happiness at home. I feel that I just want to end things. Because nobody is there for you.

    A New Life

    I'd be willing to bet the vast majority of us, likely all of us in this group, would love the opportunity to start a new life. The idea is very appealing, leaving all that weighs heavily upon us behind and starting over in a place where nobody knows you. Personally, I've long...

    The Contents Of Your Daily Life

    How many hours a day do you spend in front of a television screen? A computer screen? Behind an automobile windscreen? All three screens combined? What are you being screened from? How much of your life comes at you through a screen, vicariously? Is watching things as exciting as...

    Shattered Darkness

    These thoughts, opinions…like jagged streaks of lightning across a blackened sky. For a brief moment, they light up the world, but only to show the shadows before plunging you back into the night. Back into your lonely world. Life is dark. It isn’t always this...

    Please Dear God....

    Well, folks I had hoped by now I could honestly say my life is better and that I'm truly happy. In this case, It's completely opposite. I feel like I have failed God, myself, and all of my faithful friends on here. It's been almost a year and only three things have changed in my...

    A Father's Thoughts.

    I look at you, looking back at me with those little blue eyes. Your arms and legs move autonimous of one another, while your brain fights to control your budding motor skills.  You smile and then you cry. You are my sweet little girl. I've never felt so much for something...

    Does anyone ever just feel

    so trapped with life, there is literally no escape with the people that you are forced to surround yourself with every day, like every single thing is just caving in on you, suffocating making you feel like you're trapped in a box, no one even try's to understand or help you...

    Disappear

    Sometimes I wish there were a site where you could barter for life, give your life to someone who desires it and take another person's. When I say that, I don't mean KILL them .  .  . I mean become them. Kind of like what happened in that movie Down to Earth with Chris Rock...

    A lot of things have been going on in my life

    lately that I really do not want to be involved in and just want to escape from. Some family matters are currently happening and some things at my school are going crazy too. It really is something that I hope I will not be dragged into.
