    Never Ending Downward Spiral

    I'm done with everything, i've tried every method I know so far to prevent myself from further going down the wrong path, and so far all of my attempts have been constantly derailed by a force greater than myself...I'm an alcoholic, a failure in life, and to put it BLUNTLY a lost...

    Everywhere I hear laughter

    and see smiles. They joke around and connect. But here I am. Lost. I try to conform. I try to smile and laugh along too. I've tried. And at too many times. I feel like an outsider. I feel like an entirely new specie with a population of one. No one truly understands me. They all...

    I Wonder This A Lot...

    I used to get told that I'm a "lost cause". But, I was over-emotional and heavily into drugs back then. Now, I'm over 90% percent of those issues, but I still can't function in society. I can't stay in college and can't get a real job. So, I shrug my shoulders and hope I have...

    I Wonder That Because...

      I've been in church since I was about 5 1/2 years old. None of has made me feel closer to God or the Earth. I don't feel spiritual. I would pretend and the more I would pretend the more everyone accepted me. Now, I'm done with it.  My pastor has been so nice and loving, but I...

    I Think Im Too Far Gone.

    My mind has changed and warped to adapt to sadness, and as that sadness increases, my mind warps still further, around the bends it has already formed, it has tangled into itself, and keeps the sadness going. I dont understand myself anymore, i dont know what im thinking or...

    Too Fast

    Mom always told me the world moves too fast for me . I'm not dumb, in fact, I'm quite the opposite. People tell me I am brilliant. My IQ is off the charts, but none of this explains why I am sitting in a strange apartment that I now call home. None of this explains why I am...
