Lost Alone. White Lights. Greener Grasses.

by Jleyh007 on January 16, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

TWLOHA challenged us to come up with a six work memoir about hope/pain. So to sort of explain it... i chose both.

Most people at some point in their life... will find themselves in that position. Where all they need is a helping hand, a smiling face, or just someone to lend an ear... but when they look around. They find themselves completely alone. So in that position... most people will either chose the quick fix, death (white lights)... or they find a better road and try to make things different and better for themselves (greener grasses).
