I feel there is no hope.
I am walking on sadness.
When I cry sometimes I feel I cannot stop.
Alone, forsaken, and forlorn.
I don't want anything and anyone.
I am resigned in this twilight.
Fuck the righteous! I am tired
of all things I'm told I must do!
I am tired of listening!
I am tired of being corrected!
My anger is mine!
Vengeance is my blood!
Don't tell me what I need!
Am I lost or do you just love giving directions,
Instructions, commands?
In return for validation or approval?
Condescendingly, patronizingly...
I do not want to listen!
Don't ever tell me this is too hard!
I want to break something and someone!!
But then why do I post this tirade?
A part of me wants to heal.
How do you help someone who doesn't want to feel?

I can finally admit I pretend to say and do nice things so people will think I'm a standout guy.

A part of me says I want help in healing and another says leave me the f____ alone. A part says help me understand and another says you think you're hot sh__ you'll never understand. I want intimacy and love then when it's close by I dodge it like it was a demon. The confusion created by my CSA is still very much alive after all these years but then I read something like "where the boys play" and remember that there are good parts to my life and I feel a lot better when I dwell on them.
I'm sorry for all of us when we are in the "valley" but rejoice when we have moments of rising to the peak. I honestly believe things are getting better.

I'm a freeman now, his authority's dead
no pain monger lies in my comfortable bed!

You can begin by listening to him, by letting him see he is worth hearing. \:\)

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
