I learned more from being locked up then I ever did in school. Not Because the teacher didn’t teach nor because I didn’t want to learn the lesson but because when my freedom was taken and my life tested I had to learn, know and act out precise actions to overcome,
When the burden is heavy and the travels are long . Knowing the difference between need and want will determine if you survive the trip. Always pack light

This was actually a note to myself I’m going to post the whole thing also because there’s so much more to this so check my page if you would like to read it
Out of the night that covers me,
  Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
  For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
  I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
  My head is ******, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
  Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
  Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
  How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
  I am the captain of my soul.

Correct it .. how?
My love for you ..
Special? I thought.
But that was so untrue ..
Being careful with this fire.
Trying not to burn our bridge..
Little good that did.
I was just a stupid kid..
Mistakes happen.
I’m sorry!..
Let me correct it..
Please just tell me how?...

Poetry in its rawest form, is not only literature but an inkwell filled with empathy and a parchment awaiting possibilities
For being right.
For knowing more than you are expected to know,
For doing what is right.
For knowing who you are,
For knowing your worth.
For taking pride in your being,
For not being ignorant.
For being innocent,
For holding on to your beliefs,
For being hopeful and having faith.
For being loyal.
For being different.
For being an introvert,
For being an extrovert,
For being an ambivert.
For not being understood.
For choosing your own path.
For being your own best friend.
For loving yourself.
For leaving behind things and people for your own good.
For choosing to put yourself first.
For listening to yourself.
For being a woman,
For being a man.
For crying.
For believing you deserve the best.
For accepting who you are.
For being a cheerful person,
For being a quiet person.
For being beautiful,
For being confident.
For being realistic.
For being optimistic.
For being blessed.
For making yourself happy,
For taking yourself seriously.
For loving someone.
For being a human being.
If it is who you are,the only person to be sorry is the one trying to change you.

I’m stuck inside somebody else’s head
I don’t know who she’s supposed to be.
It’s like we’re one single body
With two different personalities
I swear sometimes neither one can breathe.

Her face is smiling but I feel her soul dying
She’s begging me to finally set her free.
But she’s the face meant for society
The one everybody loves to meet.
The one I really want to be.

I’m the one always hiding
Behind hallow eyes always lying

Saying “I’m ok”
