    I'm feeling certain I'm going mad today.

    My mind won't stop thinking but it cannot think of the right thing to do. I have been like this to please everyone, to be the good daughter for you and papa. But why do I always fail at everything? I wanted to work so hard to prove something to you but my head messes up my life...

    I keep thinking and I realize,

    I am not looking forward to anything anymore and I don't even want to live anymore. If I could give someone my life I would, that way they could enjoy it. Cause I know I never will.
