Why should I change to please people? They tell you to be yourself, and then they judge you for you. It's like standing with your clothes on. They like you when you're covered up, but when you show the real you, you're naked. They don't like it


What did I do to deserve this?
What did I do to make everything go wrong?
Did take the shot and miss?
Did I miss a note in the song?

Feeling hurt,
Feeling ache,
Feeling as if I can't make
Everything right again.

I failed to see the road ahead,
That much I know.
I knew that this would happen,
So why didn't it slow?

All my friends,
Left to flee.
All my dreams,
Drowning out at sea.

One thing that I have learned,
Never say, "Surely, things cannot get worse!"
You will be burned,
Not able to recover,
Not able to break the curse.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

You can break the curse, you just have to believe. I can connect. My life had a sudden big change once, it took a sudden turn. I wasn't sure what to think, I was a little excited, but the rest of the feelings? They were a mystery. And when I got to that change, I wasn't really happy, but I tried to go along with it. Now I'm fine with the change, but let me tell you. Change was so hard. Change can be very hard, I know, but they turn out good in the end somehow. Evrything comes out alright in the end of the story. This is just me writing my random thoughts. This is fnatastically written, absolutely wonderful. Definitely deserves 5 stars! ^_^ Thank you for sharing this!
