    Successful

    I'm not a successful person. I've never made a friend, never had a real family, don't have any talents, and will probably end up working at a fast food restaurant. It's aimless to try to be good at something. I mean, I can't be a writer because the internet is full of writing...

    It's Good To Be A "boss"

    I have siblings older and younger than me and each of them has decided to follow the plans laid down by my parents, lucky me my parents never really planned anything for me; so I'm good. I feel in control, mainly because it's easy to know what not to do by looking at the mistakes...

    You Need A Monster Truck To Make It Over This Mountain.

    I think I'll blaze a new trail right over this mountain and see what's on the other side. Why walk? When you can drive.

    They're Burdens

    Lost

    I don't know the way to anyone else's paths. Maybe there was a time when I was on their paths, but they didn't make any sense, so I got lost. I don't know where the trail I'm blazing leads, but if I don't like it I can always change direction.

    Path

    I have always walked my own path. Partly because of the amount of money I grew up with,partly because my real dad left on my fourth birthday, and mostly because I have never ever been a conformist.

    I never needed anyone, I closed my heart, isolated myself from the world. I walked my own path for so long, my own insecurities and fears made me distant and lonely. But those days are over now, I don't walk my own path alone anymore. My path came to a cross road, I choose to...
