Your crippling depression brings all of those around you to their knees and so you’ve turned to holding the whip of superficiality and now that’s all that you live for. You know this is about you and yet you pretend to misunderstand and you believe yourself above the clouds, immaculate because of your strife. In your eyes, you were dealt a lot in life that should have never been dealt to you and sure, you’ve been kind… to those outside of your circle—those who are appeased like fickle gods by vanity. I hope you know that you were needed, but somehow those that needed you earned a lesser value than those that emotionally obscured you, emotionally abused you. I also needed you once, but now I realize that I don’t need much at all and I guess I’ll keep living my life because I cannot stand to wait for your affection. Perhaps we’ll never form a deep connection and on our deathbeds will lie unfinished business, but I guess that’s the price to pay for broken families.

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College and a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami. Currently I am a high school science educator studying at Florida Institute of Technology to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. What can I say? An educated mind is a lively soul!
