Anonymous's Autobiography (submitted 5/17/06)

I am a conventional college student struggling to get by in this unconventional world. Everyday I ride the train packed with hundreds of people, everyday the same, like ants marching to perform their daily tasks trying to move up the castes. Everyday I ride this train to enter this unconventional world. I am subconciously waiting for death to come, slowly, because that is the essence of life. This perilous wait for death. I am fighting everyday to escape this conventional death, but everyday I live in convention, my telomeres keep getting shorter. Everyday that goes by, the will to fight this convention decreases. I no longer want to escape from convention. I am lost to this convention, at one time I could have escaped, but the weight of trying to be unconventional pressed me into convention. I am gone.
