- I feel like a prisoner in my own life. I want to understand why I’m like this–who I really am… but my mother won’t tell me anything about my father. I want to stop hiding myself… but I’ve grown up in a place where “different” is a bad word. I want to soak myself in water… but I live in an ocean of sand. I want to escape this prison… and start something new.
