The Note
Joel Mwakasege


Good morning.

It is 4 30 am and I have not been able to sleep. Like most nights. I am normally a very positive person. Have been struggling with that lately. I really try not to be negative but … it gets a bit tricky.

It seems people really do have the ability to mess up someone elses life no matter how hard we try for them not to do so. And I truly truly try not to listen to hurtful words or see hateful glances or gestures.

Maybe the fault lies with me. I have tried not to be who they percieve me to be. But they either do not want to see me try or I am just sooooo very wrong.

Dunno anymore.
