\"WHERE I FIRST FELL\"

I awoke at dawns break, much like every other day. Somehow this one was different.

I felt tired, as if I hadnt even slept at all, weakness flowing through my body with such an outpore of exhaustion...... No.... this day was no different. I have been here before.

This exhaustive uncertain place was all to familiar to me. Just as is a home and family is to many.

This day was to turn out different, I would be forced to see that all is not what it seems. That this \"tale\" of family isnt a lost and forgotten time for me.

I was suddenly surprised to get a ticket , a ticket to ride a train that was to a place of eternal happiness.a new start a place where all my past is forgotten, where only the present and future matter.

With no hesitation i jumped on.excitement flowing through me like riding on the Farris wheel for the first time.

Only unknowingly, this ride was to end like no other.

Days begin to pass. I started to wonder, which turned into worry n stress. I tried to find a way off,as I have many times Before in such a familiar place. Once again I let myself get trapped, trapped by the desire to find a place of true peace and happiness.

As it dawned on me that I was to face a certain re~play of all the past years I began to panic. Why would I believe in anything such as this place? And for me.

As the train sped up towards the ending of the tracks, with nothing but darkness beyond, I realized that here is where I would always be, there is no happy ending, no fairytale story to tell. Now for the first time I realized that staying on this train wasnt hell. The years of fighting to avoid a destructive end, the years of chasing happiness is where I first fell.......
