    No Escape

    Alright I'll start of with a confession. I do some things that society doesn't like, and now doesn't like me for. I smoke weed. Hey I'm a teenager. Thats what we do right? Ignore our parents and try stuff for ourselves. That's how we learn. To make a long story short I got caught...

    Everything has come to the point

    where I am so close to a sigh and walking out of this life. This is not me. I am invisible and I have not the strength to hold this mask any longer. I need to get out. Now.

    Cut Ties

    I never put a lot of value in the opportunity to escape. I always figured it was best to stay, face your fears and problems in the face and deal with it. In spite of my vulnerabilities and weaknesses, facing all my demons seems like a pretty strong thing to do. Fight or flight...

    I Hate This City

    The city I live in is hell. I can't stand it here, when I graduate I'm gone. I can't stand this place, I need somewhere open and less stressful. This city is a filthy hole, nothing interesting ever happens here, nothing good. I need to be free of this place before I go mad.

    Where's The Exit?

    At home, I'm surrounded by madness. A madness that's threatening to consume me. And I want to leave, escape before I get swallowed up. I'm looking for that exit to paradise.

    I'm Still Here, But Not For Long.

    I live in the middle of nowhere. Most people have no concept for what that means. I'll put it this way: When you drive to my home, you have to switch to all wheel drive, and in the winter you don't drive at all. I live 40 miles outside of the small town which is outside of the...

    I Don't Know How To Escape

    I think escape is the right word. I live in a three storey house, with a garden, and huge walls that surround it. I feel like I'm in prison. I hardly ever leave it. I don't even go to school. I study online. That was my choice. But I really don't know how to study in Arabic. I'm...

    I Need A Plan

    I know I need to get out of this situation but honestly have no clue how. I have a two month old baby, no job and not a dollar to my name since he controls all the money. When a person is ready to leave an abusive relationship, how do they start?

    "Home"

    I need to leave. I can't stay "home" anymore. I'm suffocating. That place, my mother, the whole thing has me in a choke hold. I can almost feel fingers around my neck when I'm there. "Home" is starting to feel more like "Hell." I need to get out. Soon

    Finding A Way Out

    I have found a lot of comfort in the fact that I did not go to school in Florida, and that I, indeed, did go to community college. When I was sixteen, I wrote a particularly scathing little piece about my family life, which was a gross overstatement. And here I am, a little over...
