In a bubble.

I always write about my feelings. I think that my feelings are the best way to express myself as well as connect to others.  However, sometimes I don’t even know what’s going on inside of me. I try to keep everything in order – I try to understand why I feel how I feel and … Read moreIn a bubble.

Let Me Be

Just because I’m not an oracle of calmness doesn’t mean that I’m irrational. Just because I’m angry at you and your friends and your family doesn’t mean that I’m an unkind person. Honestly, I don’t express such anger unless provoked. Having all the people around you stand and judge me, say I’m unsuitable, say I’m … Read moreLet Me Be

Change is something that is terrifying for everyone and anyone. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that actually likes change. I may be wrong but change is always at least a little scary.

Poem: A Life Left Behind

The years have changed us, Ten to be exact. At one time, we talked and laughed all night. We planned and dreamed of what our futures would bring. So bright it seemed,The future. The parties were fun, Mixed in with the studies, All nighters studying calculus, And differential equations. We were on top of the … Read morePoem: A Life Left Behind

Poem: Too Young to Die

Fire in the sky,Too young to die,Barely hanging on,Drag him along. Stuck in the dark,Needles are too sharp,Barely scraping by,Hang him out to dry.

Too Young to die,Someone keep him alive. -Dee Clark … Read morePoem: Too Young to Die
