I haven't always been an only child.  I had two younger siblings...they are both gone, now...and I find myself my parents' only living child..

been an only child since day one. as my life falls apart inside my soul where no one sees and around me as the spectacle of the week, the pressure is unfathomable. <br />
i am no longer the apple of their eye of a reason to be proud.<br />
i only live to show gratitude for what they've given me.
