I Sometimes Feel Like Shutting Out The World

    I Stay Confused

    Everyone has an opinion and usually my head is running in circles while feeling like its stuck in mud at the same time. I think it's easier to keep my emotions to myself rather than to burden anyone. Once in a while I will talk to someone about things but never really let them...

    "Welcome To My Life...You Don'T Know What It'S Like"

    How many times do you go through a range of emotions, and end up with "whatever?" Some things get so old, so wearing on the nerves, so sigh worthy, that it's like a tornado of frustration spinning out of control taking every ounce of energy in its path. Further, expressing ones...

    Goodbye, My Mother, My Ghost.

    How can you say goodbye to a ghost? A mere whisper of a woman who is my mother. A woman who has been lost for years now. A woman who spends nearly all time searching for her home while in here home. A woman who used to be as strong as a man physically. A woman who raised seven...
