    I Always Feel As If I Am In A Cage And I Don't Know How To Live

    The feeling started as a child.  I was unpopular and usually dissatisfied with my life.  That feeling hasn't fled.  I'm popular now, but I still feel like i'm in a cage all the time, surrounded by a world that doesn't understand me and I don't understand.  I...

    I need to dive deeper into my forms of my escape

    until I am almost right there. Whether it be writing, reading or music I need to connect with them as though they were a part of my body so I can feel them on a deeper level. I believe not only will it enhance my appreciation for them but also the escape would me much more...

    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...

    Looking For A Reason To Live

    As the title suggests, that is what has been on my mind lately. Why you ask? well...it's something I've been dealing with for about the majority of my life, though in the last few years it's steadily worsened with time. You see, I'm so tired of this world we live in. There is far...

    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...

    I wish I could escape. Go somewhere else and start all over, but it's a dream that will never happen. So for now I would be happy to just escape even on a vacation.

    We all have our weaknesses. For some reason we believe that we have the right to judge others. I'm not a saint on this, I am guilty of being judgmental and I don't pretend like I am not. It's ingrained in us to do this. We have been bought up to judge peoples ideals, what they...

    We cry as babies anytime we felt uncomfortable. But that crying never stops. When we grow up we cry inside, and drugs are our pacifier. Pain relievers, illegal drugs, music, hobbies, anything that distracts our mind from this life we are forced to adapt to. Damn. It hurts when...
