    As I sit in my car at the border between Canada

    and the United-States. Waiting long minutes, sometimes hours, for my turn, to be checked by an angry guard with a gun, cameras in my face. As I wait there, watching birds cross the border freely, back and forth. Even insects are free to cross. I ask myself: "Why are the...

    When you breathe some freedom,

    I wonder how much of a difference it is between

    doing what I want and compromising with the important people in life. And how far left do I have to go to make them feel alright? I feel like everyone wants things from me that I either can't or am not willing to give.

    I'm locked inside this tiny box.

    Each time I think I've broken free I'm shut down and pushed back inside. My dreams have all but gone into a nightmare land, and I feel nothing but fear and pain and the agony of loneliness. What can I do? What should I do? There is nothing I can do. I'm alone. I'm afraid. I'm...

    My parents are not strict,

    my government isn't oppressive, and I am not busy. Money seems like the thing that takes away freedom. If you don't have enough of it, you have to spend a lot of time working to get it. If you have money, then you might end up wanting to spend a lot of time working to keep it...
