    I wonder why God put

    so much struggle in my life when I see others living the life I always wanted. I try to be a good man but it seems that I'm never good enough for one reason or another. If I didn't have my inner strength I'm not sure where I would be.

    In The Familiar Yet Alien Wrld Around Me
