    I wouldn't mind living on the streets

    but the urge keeps growing...I'm just waiting for the day my step dad hits me or one of my parents say their lives would be better without me so I have a good reason to go.

    Starting On A Brand New Day

    To fill a duffel bag with a few possessions, purchase a bus ticket to anywhere far away, and never look back has been a dear fantasy of mine for several years now. At some point I would dye and cut my hair, change my style, and adopt a new name. Perhaps I'd slip into my new life...

    I feel like running away. From life (not a suicidal way). I'm not the person who I wish I'd be and I never will be. I'm incapable of love. I'm only scarred of being alone... I hate myself for that and for being fake. I hate myself for not being the person from my imagination. But...

    Leave to never come back.

    Leave all the bullshit behind me. The people, the arguments, the anger, their judgments, the hostility, the weirdness, the explanations, the negativity, the attitude. Leave it and them behind me. I want to start fresh. Start new. I wish this was an option.
