    The Sun Always Shines On TV

    Never give up . A long time ago someone told me that if we ever piled our troubles on a table to swap with someone else that we'd want ours back after seeing theirs - I don't know if that's true but let me tell you about what I've been and am going through not to evoke sympathy...

    Ungrateful

    Ungrateful really, that's how it would appear to a stranger. I live in a nice home, in a good part of town. I have nice parents, and decent friends. I go to college during the week, and go out with my girls on the weekend. And yet, despite all this, despite the good relationships...

    It's not as dramatic

    as that. In fact, it feels pragmatic. Things are only shocking at first - if you think about something enough, it loses any shock it may have held. I'm 37. I don't want to die, necessarily, I just don't want to be alive anymore. I'm tired. I'm exhausted, actually. Long...

    I Don't See Hope

    But I feel it. And my life doesn't "seem over," it is. It's been over for a few weeks now. I have watched many things die. Not living things, but things that meant a great deal to me. You cannot tell me I will get those things back. A lot of those things were irreplaceable...

    All I see are dark heavy clouds.

    My arms are physically weak from the thought of what i know is about to happen. But no one is listening. Every time He strikes it is covered up like nothing ever happened. I'm standing alone in the dark. I can't live like this anymore.

    Hope Is Burning Inside

    Perhaps hope is inside all of us, but locked behind a door. Hope is what we all want to have, with hope almost everything is possible. Without hope it seems that everything we all know and love is at an end (coming to it). Not being able to see it, touch it, smell it, taste it...

     I've been in dark places before in my life and right now is one of the darker ones.  I feel like I have lost all hope.  Those on the outside would probably look at me and think I should be happy but I am not.  My life so far has not been easy, nor has it been happy...
