    I Want To Feel Alive!

    I lay in my bed often, thinking to myself how much I want to be apart of something. Many ideas flow through my deep thoughts. I surf the internet to find something, such as a place I can be apart of. There is something out there for me.

    I need to be something and I have no idea what. I haven't grown up, not making any money and I have a fierce need to create that is getting less and less by day. I'm just waiting to not be. I need a direction!
