    Way Too Short

    The (global) average life span for a human is (roughly) 67.2 years (taken from a study this year). That is roughly 24,528 days. When you can take away 8,395 of those days because I am 23, to me that seems like a very short amount when you put in in context of time and how long...

    Think That I Have Done Enough

    of wasting time and energies on things that were dead when I got them, no matter how much I tried they never blossemed under my care, but then someone else came in and the blooms came out.  Hurt and sad that I could not and found that even though it made me who I am today...

    When those we love, our family, hurt us by their words,their actions, we feel double the pain. Pain due to their words, their actions & pain because we can't respond the same way.
