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

    I Want To Close The Reality For A While.

    Today I feel like I want to erase every thing in my mind for a while... It is happening so fast, I can't even catch up. Every person that is close to me misunderstand every action that I do.. Where in fact I am just being myself. They always think bad about me even though I am...

    Lately I've been shutting out everyone.

    My best friend moved away . And since then I shut out ever one else and am just staying home. I'm scared about what will happen when school comes.

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

    And when the door clicks shut and closes this time, everything will change forever. And when you walk away slowly, this realization hits you like a ton of bricks. And though you are not now on your knees, this is what may happen in the next few moment, minutes, hours, days...

    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...

    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...
