    It's Just Like the Two Mes

    Confused

    I'm young... I know that I am. Yet, I can't help fighting off this feeling that I should be settling down.  I suppose because all my friends are doing this.  None of them really seem happy though... but maybe it's because my parents met 15.  Then again...

    Confliction Of My Mind. An Everlasting.

    I want to run run run, until I can't anymore. See places i've never seen. Be a different me. Be somewhere else. Do different things. I see my glass as empty and desperately want to fill it. I want to change lives, make smiles, breath air. Climb a mountain somewhere. get out of...

    I Feel Like This

    I want to run, I want to get away and I listen to music that would be a great soundtrack for doing that but but then sometimes I would just like a hug and a home, a family, a rest

    Conflicting Ideas

    There is a big part of me that wants to wander, to get lost in the world. But there is another side that wants to settle down and live the 'white picket fence' dream. I guess I need to find a balance between the two, but I do yearn to wander, at least some of the time...
