sadly our blood is cheap around the world
I’m unable to survive in this world, nothing works out for me and I have no place to go. I’m fucked in this world from the start. I feel sorry good people get murdered and yet nobody does me in. It saddens me that people able to function and make a life and really transition are murdered, but my worthless ass goes on and I think about this every day and especially when I see these stories come across my email.
