    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

    I feel like my goals do not exist in this lost world, like I am circling around and there is no sign to show me the way out, like all those trainings I had do not apply to this world, And I have to smile and look confident so I don't scare others
