Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be
-Orson Scott Card


I want to know what it's like to be numb.
I want to learn how not to care.
I want to jump into the gorge,
with no parachute, no insurance, no chance of repair.

But give me a running start,
give me a chance to change my mind,
even though I won't take it.
But it'll give you a chance for hope, when it's something I, myself, cannot find.

But please, don't make me keep doing this.
I'm tired of smiling when I want to cry,
I'm tired of acting for everyone else's sake,
I'm sick of being alone, of losing hope, of failing, when it's hard enough just to try.
