    Want To ? No, I Don't Believe.

    Because in the end hope is all we have. And maybe it's foolish from me to believe, but I will never lose faith. Don't underestimate me! I don't quit and I don't run! (=

    Still Hoping For My Fairy Tale

    Do fairy tales still come true or are these those things that our mothers told us before putting us to bed? Do modern day fairy tales even exist anymore? All my life I have believed in fairy tales, but as much as I hate to admit this the older I get the more cynical and...

    Just Not Sure...

    With all that I have been through in my life... I am not sure that there is a happy ending out there for me. I am kind of thinking that maybe I have done so many things wrong in my life that it is my punishment to spend my life without a happy ending. But I still want to believe...

    Oh Whoopy Doo

    yes i still believe in happy endings but only in films not in my life. Life is about ups and downs...nothing has a happy ending in life does it!, i mean at the end of it we all meet death...nothing much happy about that really is there!

    I know it’s difficult. Life isn’t a faery-tale and the heroes don’t always come out alive. Horrid, despicable and atrocious senses take place in this real-life movie and finding a hint of happiness is like trying to find that pin in a haystack in the dark...
