In Limbo

      I really have no idea when I stopped believing. I mean, I used to pray before I went to bed at night and I would end each prayer with " I love you." But things happened... bad things. Things I could never explain to you without starting to cry. After a little while I realized that I had just stopped believing. I haven't said a prayer in years. I stopped believing in people, in nature, and just the world in general.

I've gone through a ton of different religions. I went to a Catholic church, and than I joined the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints (which is the Mormon religion.) I had a friend who was a Jehovah's Witness and I practiced that religion for a couple of months. But nothing fits. Nothing ever fits, nothing ever will fit.

I'm in my own limbo.

I don't say this to be cool because I know a lot of kids nowadays claim not to believe in God to be popular. I just...I'm searching for something...I just haven't found it yet.
