I Sometimes Feel Like Shutting Out The World

We all do sometimes. 528 People

    The Last Night. The Last Day. This Moment Now....

    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...

    In My Own Little World

    On some days I just feel like shutting out the world and being alone. Some times life gets a little too much for me and I just need to be alone with my thoughts and a 12-pack of beer, and of course some good music to space out to when being alone. As I get older I see myself...
