    I Will Be Me No Matter What Life I End Up With

    There is something about HOPE that doesn't fit in with the life I'm living right now. There isn't anything to look forward to and I am always me. What faces me is divorce and certain other unpleasant factors. Still I will be me. Everything used to be so bright and there was much...
