Selfish? Selfish?! I'll tell you what's selfish, arrogant. Forcing the empty shell of a lost soul live a life with nothing more than sorrow and darkness, what's selfish is holding me back from happiness, from release, I've no idea what's next, but it can be no worse than the prison I'm living in called Earth. Each day is longer than the previous and I fall asleep hoping I don't awake, I awake and I feel as if I'm waking into a nightmare. Life is no privellage, it's a chore, a never ending plague of darkness and I can't bear any more of it. So how dare someone call me selfish.

"Help?! I don't need help, I'm not supposed to be here, I was born this way for a reason, this is how it's all supposed to happen! Why can't you understand, stop keeping me here!!"
