New and Confused

Recommended Posts


Heres another "i'm new" message to add to the collection, but hi i'm new! I'm not completely sure how this sit works entirely but I was directed here by a crisis hotline. I've never blogged or used anything similar to this before so this is a new experience and in some way my last resort for help. I guess we'll see how this goes!

Heres a portion of my favorite poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley that I'd love to share with you all and hopefully it speaks to you as well,

"I am the daughter of Earth and Water, And the nursling of the Sky; I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores; I change, but I cannot die."
