    I wish I could pull back the curtain and believe. I wish I wasn't in a funk of darkness. I am happy for others and optimistic when it comes to the happiness of others, I just think that I've "missed my window" at any kind of happy existence and should just be "happy enough" at this point. Find happiness in small doses and support those who are shooting for better things.
