    I Need To Find The Balance...

    ...now that is the understatement of the new millenium. I'm not sure I ever had any. Maybe a bit at some points here and there but I think, generally, not too much. I get bored easily. I can't sit still for long. Always looking for something new. Everything always seems so...

    Inclination

    She fought the urge to clear the ground. To look out and see nothing. She knew her stillness would intensify if she waited. She had to release fear. Even though its columns were consuming the edges of her mind. Possessing like a spark behind her eyes. The glimmer of silent...

    Fear & Trust

    Thoughts As They Came...

    An odd thing. I don't know what it is. Just a strange feeling. When I close my eyes, I see it. I can feel it. It's there, in my minds eye. Like a vision of sorts. A wall. It's in front of me. Cold and tall. Cement blocks. Cold and gray. I turn, there is another. I look and...

    This Is The Time Of My Life

    Some time ago, I felt that I needed a balance. I couldn't handle the stress of living in a society where everyone expects something of you and you are bound to live by their demands. One day, I decided to think for myself instead of how others are perceiving me. I told myself why...

    Like Catching Steam

    The same feeling. When I wake up in the morning, before I fall asleep, when I have a quiet few moments to think. The feeling that something just isn't right.I'm happy. I'm in the middle of my teenage life, and I've put up with more than I'm comfortable with during those years...
