    True Strength

    Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong. In a world where it is common place to see cruelty in every form no matter where you turn it is easy to become desensitized to it. It seems to be so easy to put another person down and build your ego and...

    I sit here and think about everyone

    that has done me wrong and how cold they could be... But then it hits me how much more powerful you are when there's more good on your side than bad. It really makes you realize the real from the fake and makes you appreciate the people who are still there a whole lot more.

    I Feel Out Of Place

    The Outcome

    In the end had it all been worth it? When all you saw were people scattered and hearts broken. Watching the blood running into the ground while faces stared blankly at the destruction. Was it all worth it to prove one side right? Was either side truly honorable in their actions...

    You Have An Impact On The World

    In this day and age I speak to so many people, young and old, who feel their lives are worthless and that they cannot make a difference. People today feel that if they are not famous in pop culture or the government that they cannot have any impact on the world. I heartily...

    I've been betrayed so many times,

    even by my own family. That's the reason why I keep to myself, only have a couple of close friends, one of them being my cousin who I grew up with. I would like to be able to trust people again but I din't know how.

    I often say I was born in the wrong time period.

    From what I have learned the 1950's would have been a good time to live in. There were more good caring people in the world than there were bad. But since we have so much freedom the bad people and their evil selfish self-centered ways corrupted the good and now humanity as a...
