    The game I have come to understand,

    that the human is a complex creature. We are gifted a power like none other in nature. Brought into this world through love and devotion. And in our first day we are born with the notion. That we are unique and separate from the whole. That we are random, like a dice roll. But...

    I'm young, 18 years old.

    I am dreading to start work again after this break. I hate it, I feel like another number, I don't enjoy what I do, stuck in a office 10-5 doing the same thing over and over again. It's an apprenticeship so my pay isn't anything special either. I'm trying to be happy, I'm trying...

    Im tired of my life. I'm tired of my every day

    routine. I'm tired of the way I've been acting. I need a change. A big change. I need to flip this life upside down, turn it around, turn it inside out, something... I can't stand living this way anymore. I'm not going down a good path, and I need to take action. Starting...

    Mirror of the sun Like the sun,

    you are always there. Your luminescence shines, no matter what you wear. Your pull controls, the greatest of waves. You are beautiful, in every stage. When I look, deep into your eyes. You see, right through me I cannot hide. You inspire me, to do great things. When I listen...

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...

    The future of the past.

    I have to remember, when I am deep in battle. And the odds are against me, not to get rattled. To stay pure of heart, and clear of mind. When I fight with myself, to myself I am unkind. It is the past, and the future my foes. They remind me, of fear and of time long ago. When...

    because I don't want to just vegetate and survive - go to work, go home, eat, sleep etc - and I'm not interested in status symbols, marriage, children or settling down. I want to live my life like a beautiful adventure or like a work of art. I want to travel, I want to make...

    Part of life is realizing

    when to walk away, when to fight and when to just give up. I'm still trying to get this part down but I think its easier to admit defeat than to fight for things that I dream of at night.

    I feel like I'm at a crossroads.

    Nothing significant has changed, but that may be the reason for my discontent. I want things to change. I want to look forward to something, lie awake at night unable to fall asleep because I'm too excited. I haven't felt excited for anything in too long. I feel like I've given...

    I'm suicidal but I don't want to die.

    .. I've suffered from bipolar depression for almost 6 years now, I've lost so much I've lost my innocence to a monster that raped me, I've lost friends and I've lost hope that everything eventually will be fine. It wont. I just want to be able to live my life to the fullest.

    Thoreau

    Lost thought The thoughts

    that run through my mind. Are like a parent, whose child he can not find. He knows where she is, but no matter. His vision is blocked, by an unseen splatter. Is it pride? Is it sadness? Is it fear? Selfish emotions, his mind doesn't want to hear. Love drives him on, aimlessly...

    There's a difference between surviving

    and living. I was the type of girl who would walk with her head bowed in the hallway, going straight to class without stopping to "chat" or "catch up" or "hang out" with others. I didn't willingly engage in human interaction, and perhaps I made good grades. Perhaps I did well on...

    Nobody ever had life easy,

    we all go through struggles that shape us and change us. At times our losses may be far more than our gains, we may start looking at others who seem to have it better than us with envy and hate not knowing what they gone through or what they have lost in return of that gain.
