    Life Not Including Kids

    I love my kids dearly.  However, I feel like I need to find some kind of activity for myself.  I need to have a life that doesn't surround my kids.  Yes I love them.  Yes they need me now, but its also not fair to revolve my life around them.  What...

    Lost In Life...

    What am I today? Its not who I use to be, this stranger that i have become, in the same skin that has always been. I have lost my laughter, and the fun I use to be.  My life has been held back, and I am lost.  The things I want, the things I need are no...

    I need to find myself.

    Who Am I

        In a crowded room full of laughter I am full of pain; Feeling empty but small; Who am I? Who am I really? Can someone tell me? Who can see behind the mask To the pain and guilt within? Who can really say they know me When I don't recognize myself at...

    Try no best friends who care. Watch who u call your best friend because most likely that person will always put themselves before you.
