  • Who am I? Am I really that pathetic? Or she got me to think that I am pathetic? An attention-seeker drama queen is how she made me feel. I played every card to get her attention without success. Now I feel like a piece of rubbish you disposed of. You made me believe I was worth of your love and at the same time you made me believe I was not worth a penny.
    And here I am like a land that once was blossoming and now it resembles a desert. I look within myself for water, but you took it all from me. I allowed you to do it. The ground was prepared for you by the bullies, the jealous rivals, the abuse of all kinds. It was so easy to rip the trees and the bushes, the lawn. Almost nothing had strong roots in this land.
    And I go down more than ever. All I can find is hot chillies when I'm looking for that water that this ground needs to create life again.
    I wish it were this simple. Complicated? No! There's more! I dream big with being a lovely park that not only blossoms but gives inspiration to others in their daily lessons from life. Maybe daydreaming is another escapist way of life.
    I see others still trying to drain my ground and wonder when am I going to stop allowing others feeding from my dry ground and how do they find the life that I'm so desperate to find in myself.
    Then I stop and wonder. Was this ground always dry and the plants on it were made of plastic? Am I then who you say I am. Am I really that pathetic?
    Who am I?
