As I enter what life really is, I see more, feel more, hear more.
I am more.
It's crazy, really, but I learn to encompass the knowledge I receive every day.
I notice things now.
I can't quite grasp the feeling of being a parent, but I try.
I can't get complete control of feelings of a gay boy, but I try.
I don't understand why I don't feel the way a straight person would, but I try.
I try to be Atticus Finch, from To Kill A Mocking Bird.
I try to walk around in someone else's skin.
I try, but I loose my grip.
I read to feel this.
To feel like I am someone who isn't me.
When I read, I become the characters.
Their stories are mine.
I live their lives.
It's the only way I can accept being anyone but myself.
