Underneath My Skin.

Extracts from this document...


Underneath My Skin My name is Makius. I am 15 years old, and I hate my life. My parents are dead, I have no friends, I get bullied every day, and the worst of it is that I can't do anything about it. I now live in Omaha, Nebraska with my aunt, Patrice, who just made 21 and is never home. She is my last living relative. At school this kid named Brian messes me all the time. I never fight back because I'm just peaceful like that. I get good grades (I have nothing else to do with my spare time except homework).

It's a very strange feeling when you realize that you have been viewed like a TV show for eight years. It's an even stranger feeling when you realize that the one person watching also knew every thought, feeling, and mental picture you've had for eight years. I started to think about all the personal things I've thought about over the years. All the bad things better left thought than said, the ill feelings I've held in, and those mental fantasies.
