    To Be Accepted By My Family

    I Can Feel It. Somewhere Under There...

    And I hate it. Maybe because it feels like a weakness. Why should I need anyone to tell me that I am good enough? Or that I fit in somewhere? Or that I am good. Why do I have this obscure awareness of this thing that lurks beyond, making me feel unworthy? (Wait, the why is...

    Won't Happen Anytime Soon

    I would love to truly be accepted. But I don't think I will be, and that's ok. I know I'm werid, and different. Maybe it's better NOT to be accepted by the rest anyway. but who really knows. I'm me and if you don't like it, then don't accept me. :P
