    There is no one i love,

    no one who really seems to love me. Love is the main reason people want to live, but what do you do when you have no love? I can't think of any reasons to live, the only thing keeping me alive is that im a coward.

    Reason to live How can you live

    when you do not want to live? How can you fight when you do not want to live? For years I have been pretending to live. For the last 20 years. Earlier I had the reasoning, the logic, at least to live. But since the last ten years I do not even have the rationale to live, no...
