    I know that I've done it all wrong. I've had choices in front of me & I have chosen wrong. Not every choice was wrong but the big ones, the life changing ones, I have been wrong. I am not happy. No matter how hard I try, I cannot seem to find any happiness. If I'm lucky, there's...

    This Would Be Great

    Start from scratch. Forget all the people who did nothing but bring you down. Find new friends. Meet new people. Have a new identity. That would be nice.
