Alexander O’Neal – Sunshine

As I wonder what I want, and how to attain it, summer grows closer. This is my life, I am an adult, and everything is under my control. This newfound level of awarenesses is as exhilarating as it is terrifying. With no one here to hold my hand and lead the way, I have grown stunted and unsure; I don’t know how to live. It sounds simple enough, but there has to be direction for real progress to be made.

Ralph Tresvant – Sensitivity

What am I living for? Where am I going? Why? There are so many unanswered questions that lead to frustration and depression. I can work, finish school, and find a decent job, but why? There has to be some greater purpose to my existence, some goal that makes it all worthwhile. I don’t know what it is, but I have a hunch…

Christopher Williams – I’m Dreamin’

I feel the urge to settle down, get married, and start a family. Some might say that it’s too early for such a decision, but I believe that it may be time to partner up and father children. So much of what people work toward feels shallow; money and possessions cannot scratch this itch. I need to make a difference. I need to make an impact on this world to feel unlike a waste of space.

Christopher Williams – Every Little Thing U Do

A family can fill this void, love conquers all. I want a loving wife and children, it’s about that time. Nothing else can justify the stress of everyday life, nothing but the love of a family.

I will write.

I must write. I must get into the habit of simply throwing thoughts onto the page. This is how it begins, it’s not pretty. Thoughts come disorganized and unfiltered. Tangled messes of thinking. Half-formed, aborted ideas barely deserving mention. These are my thoughts. I must work them into the gold I wish them to be. Just as a man is raised from a boy, good writing will be reared from this filth.

Filth, is it really? Has writing well eluded me, or have I changed so much that I don’t recognize my written self? The more I think about it, the less clear the solution becomes. This is it, this is writing. Much the same as it has always been, it is I who has changed. It must be.

Grammar? I’ll get to it. Style? I’m working on it. Content? Wracking my worn brain as I type each word. I feel my intellect has waned in the last year. Words grow harder to find, constructing sentences requires more effort, speech is often difficult and tiresome. I don’t know what caused the decline. Maybe it was the drugs. Maybe the lack of social interaction. Maybe an underlying condition undermining any progress. I feel less capable, less intelligent, less clever, slower, duller, lacking insight, generally depreciated.

On the contrary, this could be an awakening. A forced end to my arrogance as I grasp the limits of my fully matured cognitive ability. This is it. This mind, this ability, it’s all I have.
