    Living Without Appreciation

    What makes you smile? True appreciation of your loved  one? Encouragement keeps you going in life? You won't lift a book if not to discuss it with your dearest? You keep yourself idle to accompany your dearest in what ever they are doing? Are you a follower? If yes, then...

    Open My Eyes.

    For once in my life I want to breath. See the true light of life and believe. That this world and my life will be alright. And I will be able to say I'm fine, without having to lie. I will smile and be happy and I will feel alive. For once, I want this in my life. One day, I...

    Living Without Deprivation Of Love...

    I have recounted in many stories how I am alone physically for most of the day. I am also alone in my mind. My empathy and holistic beauty and intelligence is a repellent to most of the accepted members of society. I am proudly abnormal and seek solace on the fringes. Still, I am...

    I Live!

    Personally, I think living life to the fullest is the best way to feel and be alive (on your own terms) - kinda like killing two birds with one stone.

    Apathy

    I suffer from blunted and dull emotions. It's hard to feel much of anything. I want to feel something, for anything! Just to remind myself I'm alive! I place a lot of limitations on myself. It stunts my ability to enjoy things. I can't free me from myself. I hope to get better...

    The Void

    Will never disappear.  It will continue to grow until it kills me.  Maybe then i will be free.

    More Than Breathing

     Of course, you can be alive in the physical sense and not enjoy it.  You can be dead in the emotional sense and still breathing.  If you eat, sleep, recycle waste and breath, you're technically alive but I think there is a whole lot more to life and it's potential...
