" I'm running, running for freedom, running to get out, running nowhere in particular, any place but here. But I'm on a treadmill, I'm tired and not moving. I want to sit down and cry, for I cannot focus my mind on positives when the ones I love are not with me. But I crawl, trying to stand up, to continue my journey of hope towards freedom but this path is hard, but I have to shine through because what is life if you can't LIVE it? You will be alone during the journey but at the end, your loved ones are there waiting. Live in hope, even though your future is misty and happiness will not last. Push through because you have only got ONE chance."
Copyright 2011 Matthew Shaw
I wrote this for everyone who feels trapped and living a conformed life and feels alone. Times are hard, but remember it gets better... Maybe not now, not tomorrow, but it will. It will.

For a person of 12-19 years in age, peace is sitting in front of the TV with a laptop and talking to friends and going out with them. For a person of 20 - 30 years of age, peace is getting a good job and a day off."
