    Thoughts As They Came...

    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...

    Balance

    I need to relax and not psych myself out as much BUT I can't keep up with this procrastination either or I will never be successful.

    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...
