Here is a short story I just wrote called "Wasted".

Wasted

By: George Gordy

I’m wasted. No, not wasted as in drunk or high. I mean wasted as in my entire life, thus far, has been a waste. I’ve wasted so many opportunities to do better out of selfishness and stupidity. My mistakes have caught up with me, and I don’t see the point of doing this whole life thing anymore. Should I end it all, right here in this bedroom? Should I put my loved ones through the shock and horror, of finding my lifeless body lying in a pool of blood? Should I take this gun here and put a bullet in my head? I mean, why shouldn’t I?

“It’s selfish! There are people out there who care about you!” Okay, forget suicide. Say I was driving on 695, I get hit by a truck and that’s the end of it. Would anybody really care? Sure they’ll dress me up real nice, put me in a casket, put my face on t-shirts, and throw me a nice little funeral. After a week nobody will care, and they’ll forget it ever happened. It’s not like I found the cure for cancer, was a famous celebrity, or a former president. I was a nobody who contributed little, if anything, to humanity.

“People who commit suicide go to hell!” Is Hell really worse than a worthless existence? Burning in a lake of fire for all eternity really worse than being a screw up? Is it worse than everyone hating you and hating yourself. Does God really care if I go commit suicide? I’ve been told my entire life that I was “fearfully and wonderfully made”. If God really gave a !@#$ about me, then why did he make me this way? Why does he put us on Earth to suffer, so that we spend our entire lives hoping that we die so we can go to Paradise?

So with all that being said, I have nothing to lose. Time to put an end to a wasted life. This Glock 40 has one bullet in it, for one purpose… Wasted.

The writing style seems a lot better than in the other things you have posted in this blog. I suspect because you were thinking less a you wrote it rather than trying to force it out so the text is much less disjointed. Maybe that is something you could take from this and incorporate into your other writings?

Berbers you are wrong. There is purpose to existing and on a basic level it's to further the existence of the human race. With modern technology and a large population of humans people have lost track of that but it still remains true.

Loki, your're succeeding; make the most of your success!

God isn't real, you are just a collection of electric impulses, there is no purpose to your existence other than to exist. Find what happiness you can and ride it out :|

You're on earth because you were conceived. You're purpose is to further the existence of the human race, and so far you're succeeding! You only have one, make the most of your success!

I believe in God, and I've seen evidence in my life that proves he exists. However, I come from a religious family where I didn't really have a choice and I'm currently in the process of finding him for myself. I don't think we were put on Earth to simply exist either. I guess you can say that we each have our own purpose and I'm still trying to find mine.

Thank you, but what do you mean by "I was thinking less"?

You are on Earth to test how you react to having power and/or the lack of it. Endure and thrive.

I can somewhat agree with this. Everyday of our lives we're either trying to gain or fight against power.

Thank you, but what do you mean by "I was thinking less"?

In the earlier texts it reads very much like a collection of sentences that just happen to be on the same page. This suggests you were thinking too much about each individual sentence rather than on the entire paragraph or chapter in one go, whereas this text flows much better suggesting you were less hung up on each sentence.
