Losing five close friends to drug overdoses, he becomes mentally spent, and feels like he is dying from the inside out. He is filled with so much rage, heartache, and venom. There is a gloomy feel to his everyday life.
Often slipping in and out of reality, he feels abandoned by those he loves, and disconnected from life in general. Constant flickers of false hope fills his heart with raw unwanted emotions.
This young man is not the only one living this way. Every single day there are people like this with problems like money, addiction, family, etc. Many dreams are fading away into the far off land of addiction, jealousy and greed.
There are those countless souls who do their best to help those in need. The world we live in is full of darkness, but the helpers strive to make this world a more suitable place to rest our heads each night.
