    To love or not to love, That is the question. Whether he likes you or not, It still hurts to love. It still hurts to see him every day and know that someday he may leave. Or you may leave him. I can't say that I have loved before. Or at least not like this. I spend every waking mom...

    December 16, 2013 For some reason I expected to have a good life. A happy life. A wonderful life. A beautiful life. But life has been poisoned by the thoughts of other people. The mean ones knock us down and run us over. The good ones lift us up with lies to encourage us and make us believe...

    If someone were to write my biography, they wouldn’t even know the half of it. They wouldn’t know the thoughts running through my head or the way I feel when I’m sitting in a room full of people and friends and I’m sitting by myself. They wouldn’t know the first thing about the real me. ...

    It happens so quickly. It’s just a swerve to the left to avoid the car tire in the road, and then you run into the car in the next lane. It’s the car rolling over and over after impact and it seems like it will never stop rolling. It’s the smashed windshield and the crunching of the frame...

    I don't know how to be happy. I know how to laugh And how to smile, But I don't know how to be happy. I tried to be happy once. I laughed and smiled And talked to friends, But then they ignored me And left me out of conversations And then I was sad again. And now I'm try...

    There were people. Lots of people. One of them picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, screaming curses at everyone he passed. He was only trying to protect me, but that doesn’t make me forget the terrible things that happened that night. The men in the black ski masks were terrifyin...

    Every girl should be comfortable with their body. Every woman should be comfortable with their body. I am comfortable with my body. I am uncomfortable with my body. I am so confused. Society tells women and girls that they should be comfortable with their bodies whether they're tiny or...

    They tell us not to stress too much over school. They tell us school determines our future. They tell us to do good in school. They tell us not to work to hard. When we start flunking they get mad and tell us to get our grades up. When we have a C average they tell us to get our grades up. W...

    I'm honestly starting to think I'm in shock. I mean, how are you supposed to react when one of your friends you've been close to for 3 years suddenly turns out to be a lesbian? Since she told me, I've been in a daze. I feel like I've been dreaming. This is all a dre...

    When you're thee oldest child in a family with only a younger brother, graduation means nothing to you when you're a freshman in high school. The only seniors you may know might be thee ones in your section in band, but you're not close to them in any way. Well, that was my experience...

    My heart was broken once long ago, and no one was ever there to mend it. So i mended it myself. I got out the bandages and the gauze and the love. I put them all on... But here, years later, i realize it didn't work. The love was my own and the bandages and gauze were cheap. The bandages ...

    This world is being destroyed. The advanced technology is destroying the people who inhabit this world and therefore they’re destroying the world itself. Why do we insist on creating more and more technology? Do we want to be less smart than we are now? Technology used to be something ...

    What more do you want from me? Haven’t I given you enough? I hang out with you, Waiting to break at any moment, Your words and actions tearing at my heart, Shattering my mind, Dissolving my soul. What more do you want from me? I try my best to act happy. I try my best to act like you’...

    There are so many things I’d like to say, But there aren’t any words that would explain correctly. There aren’t words to explain how I feel. There aren’t words that could describe my thoughts. There are so many things I’d like to say, But I don’t know how to say them. Whether it’...

    It’s 9/11/12… And to think, just last night I had been looking up at the pitch black sky while standing in the brand new football stadium during one of the many Monday Night Rehearsals for marching band. I didn’t even think about the horrible tragedies that happened 9/11/01. I woke up this m...

    I can’t stop this addiction. Once it had been started, There had been no way to stop it. You say I’m obsessed. That may be true, But there’s no one else at school as obsessed as me. You could say it’s almost like a drug. I drown in it from time to time. I envelope myself in it’s w...

    I remember when I lost my mind. There was something so pleasant about that place. Even your emotions have an echo in so much space. And when you're out there without care yeah I was out of touch. But it wasn't because I didn't know enough. I just knew too much. Does that make me...

    The last football game at Eagle Stadium. Senior Night. It’s sad for many people. At least 1,000 people are leaving this high school. But that’s not why I’m crying. Did you hear me say “hi”? Did you see the way she looked back at me? I did. I heard and saw this, Because it’s what...

    Numb. The feeling you get she you feel, But you don’t feel. The feeling you get after your god attacks you, Leaving you on the ground, Pushing back the tears even though you feel the pain. It’s the feeling you get when your parents fight. When you dad doesn’t get why your mom let one of...

    There are times I look up and think, God…why am I like this? Why is my life like this? Why am I so miserable sometimes? And then sometimes I break down crying. Depending on what’s going on, my life could be the best thing I could ever hope for, or it could be something that I want to throw away....

    My heart is pounding. My head is spinning. These hurtful words, knock me down. I drown out the noise, leave myself with my thoughts. My thoughts stab me and push me down. I let the noise back in, and i'm being hurt. About to cry, i push back the tears, and just deal with it. I'...
