Why Do People Fall In Love?

by James (age 15?)

No one knows.
I don't know, but I wish I did,
so I wouldn't hate people so much.
I have a nice girl I like,
but I get so mad
I'm afraid I may hurt her,
so I stay away from girls.

They sometimes make me feel bad about myself.
As a kid I had so much hate for the world,
and I still feel hate.

I wish people could love me better!!!
I want to talk to the girl I like.

I am afraid of myself.
