    I Am Thinking About Just Going.

    I am lost and scared and without friends. It's funny how life has buried the good. It wasnt always this way. I am a happy, caring and loving spirit inside. I have a house, a car, a dead end job and ever mounting bills. I don't want to be a slave to money. I want to live a simple...
