    I am worthless and I know it.

    I know why no one wants me around but it still hurts every-time. Again and again I am nothing. I understand. but I can't leave. I still need them. I am worse than worthless I am a waste of air and a waste of their life. But I'm still here. I am sorry.

    I am not the first person you loved.

    You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night. Our love came when we’d given up on...

    I feel only I understand

    when the sun rises into sight and touches the air cooled by the night. I guess only I understand when the sun lays on the horizon and paints its colors on the earth with heavens eyes on it. I think only I understand and the stars in the sky how much it means to my heart...

    Eye Opener

    Today my friends and I went to San Fransisco to do a Sociology project. We dressed up as homeless people and begged for money! I cannot believe how eye opening this experience was. You can VIEW it here www.youtube.com/KarinaMarieRuiz

    I got to work with what I have.

    Everyone can become something. Every one has the opportunity. It's just harder for some people cause they might not have as much as this person or that person. We all have doors that can be opened some are easier to find than others. Some people never find theirs...

    We Are Not An Option: When Love Isn't Returned

    Ah, the stereo typical scenario: Girl/Guy falls in love with their best friend who only wants mere friendship. Many of us have been there, but please allow me to demonstrate how YOU deserve better than to be an option. This isn’t a sad story and it’s not yet over. However, I...

    It was all pointless.

    It was doomed. It was broken, it was shattered, it was misunderstood. It was confused. It didn't know better. It didn't know how. It didn't find you. It couldn't find you. It was lost. It was hurt, hurting, hurtful. It wanted to, but it couldn't. It was too scared and it hunted...

    I understand my self.

    To my family who thinks they do, you don't. I helped myself getting out of depression, sleeplessness night, headaches that aren't headaches and anxiety attacks, not you. I even helped myself when I got hurt by others and getting out of these fears, not you. So, don't try to say...

    I understand that what I'm experiencing is what

    I should experience. And in the lens of the world is fairly wonderful compared to what some ppl deal with. And that it won't last forever.

    I understand. I do not judge.

    I can go back in time and change the past, but have no desire to do so. How many times a day do you walk your pet peeves?

    I get it now. I mean, it is all too obvious: The world is a bad place. It is full of obscenities. The question that bothered me is how things got that way. It is pretty simple, actually. For centuries, it was a struggle to provide food and ressources for his tribe, clan...
