The eyes can't lie,
hearts can't pretend,
overflowing joy and love,
in You, that I found.

Never I had imagined,
sins were forgiven,
***** yet accepted,
in You, I was saved.

I am broken,
You completed me,
Longing to be with You,
And now, you embraced me.

The satisfaction I get
When I see the look on their faces
When children show me they can do something
That I just told them they're not capable of doing

Just told my 5 year old sis she can't read 'Mississippi' and she showed me she could.
It's a motivational tactic challenging kids to something you know they can do.
Unfortunately you are not for everyone. Not everyone will like you. Not everyone will love you regardless of what you do and how nice of a person you are. Not everyone will vibe with your energy and not everyone will understand and support you.

Even though it is a bitter pill to swallow at times don't let it make a turmoil of your emotion and deplete your energy. Because your time and energy is so much more precious than exhausting yourself by shapeshifting to pander to the whims of others, moulding yourself to fit in every where and hence retaining no shape to call your own.

Choose not to sacrifice your uniqueness to succumb buttering up their bread. To Be selective with your energy by politely waving them goodbye to stand by your values and lifestyles that most deeply resonate with you. Choose to take social risks regardless of the awkward glances and haughty whispers. Choose to not care of what others think to the point it stifles your ability to take risks and disrupt your social satisfaction.

For there is nothing more liberating than to not waste your life allowing the faultfinders to dictate your actions. To seek to align your actions with your heart. To stand up for something, to do and believe what brings  content regardless of it being disliked. It is beautifully candor being your authentic self.

She never wanted to be prettier
Nor that she wanted to be better.
Only wished to be accepted.

Hi, I'm Samantha.
I like to write poetry.
Maybe you do too?

It started quite some
Time ago when I thought to
Put words on paper.

Now I'm here, writing
Some simple little haikus
For everybody.

I hope you enjoy
My collection of poems.
Please have a nice day.
I'm so happy to finally be a part of the Hello Poetry community!

I’ve never met someone quite like you before.
I mean,
I have met boys who do ****** **** like you,
And say the most random stuff like you
But never have I ever,
met someone who makes me feel this way.
We haven’t known each other long but I feel like  
I’ve known you since Adam and Eve felt,
how we say we feel.
You make me feel safe,
when you have your strong arms around my waist
You make me feel safe,
even when you just look at me,
when you think im not paying attention.
I feel like I will never be hurt
You bring me such a safe feeling
when my head is on your chest
I hear your heart start beating faster,
I smile knowing I am part of the reason
your breathe gets heavier
when I start tracing lines, stars, and hearts
with my nails lightly touching your warm calming chest.
I never thought in a million years
That a girl like me,
A girl who has been so broken from others,
would ever find a boy
who makes me feel whole once again.
When I tell you that when I look in the mirror im disappointment
You tell me that the only thing you see
is a girl
as pretty as a full moon.
When you tell me you think im pretty
It’s different,
even though those words have hit my ears from others lips before
when it comes out of yours
I actually believe it.
God the things we could do…

**** me,
Love me,
Tape me
Snap me.

Share me
Bite me,
Tie me up
And slap me.

Break my heart,
Give me Pain (.) Pleasure.
Slap me, **** me
In equal measure.

Break my heart,
Like you did once
& given the chance you pounce
Want to treat me like a dunce.

****, I been there more than once.

Love me
Caress me,
Make me whole,
Don't break me.

Make me yours
Between your jaws,
Break me free
& inspire me.

Mend my Heart,
Give pleasure and love,
In blissful equal measure,
Kiss me, love me
Break me free
& hug me.

Heaven, only when I let it be.
Written off the top of my head. Some profanity, I apologise. Sounds clunky to me, though I don't want it to flow exactly, if you understand me.

I take up the gauntlet
Wrestling you, word and rhyme.
Posturing my play afforded,
For a mental good time.

Tatting for ***
This-ing for that
Battling your wit
Prose-ing a chat.

No way to win,
Enticing it may be.
The towel I throw in
You will always beat me!
A challenge TF

We don't mention the monsters in the closet.
We don't talk to our imaginary friends.
Just because we don't acknowledge what we shouldn't,
Doesn't mean that they were never really there.

Keep it to yourself,
Reality is now.
Keep it to yourself,
For creativity is the modern day insanity.

Don't believe in things that aren't allowed to exist.
Even your own two eyes can lie sometimes.
Am I allowed to exist?
Can you believe in me?
Do you believe in me, baby?

We don't mention the monsters in the closet.
We don't talk to our imaginary friends.
Just because we don't acknowledge what we shouldn't,
Doesn't mean that they were never really there.

What have you seen?
What part of your soul did you shut down today?
Don't you think it's more insane to ignore what is glaringly true
Than to feign a logical existence?

There's more to the picture,
Some missing piece to the puzzle of reality.
Growing up is growing old.
Don't die with your childhood.

Keep it to yourself,
Reality is now.
Keep it to yourself,
For creativity is the modern day insanity.
I'm not quite sure if this is a song or a poem -- you decide.
