I didn't change for me.
I didn't change for you.
I changed because I had to.
But the one thing I could never change
Is who I am inside.
Because who I am is too important
to leave behind
Fear protects us
from danger
Anger fights
against problems
Sadness connects us
with loved ones
Disgust makes us reject
What's unhealthy
Without fear, much more
would've died
Making lives miserable
of left behind
Much more would've been
leading disabled lives
Begging more common sight
Without disgust
harmful substances
We would've consumed
Inviting dreadful diseases
unhealthy life
As unpleasant as they're
We can't deny
Negative things do serve
Important purposes
in our lives
After experiencing negatives
Importance of positives
We realise
Enhanced and appreciated
values we enjoy
Negatives compel us
Invent ways so we survive
Take us on
an evolutionary path
So you're
what you're today
And I am
the man I am today
Positive emotions make us feel good. But negative emotions are also important in life. This poem is an attempt to bring forth this truth.

Whoever needs to hear it:
abuse is abuse no matter what kind.
Physical, mental, verbal, ******,
none of it is OK. It will never be OK.
Whoever needs to hear it:
men, women, non binary,
however you identify yourself,
just because you "can take it"
doesn't mean you should have to.
Whoever needs to hear it:
you didn't do anything to deserve it.
Whoever needs to hear it:
you have nothing to be ashamed of.
It's OK to ask for help.
And Whoever needs to hear it: you matter.

-Tell me something important about you
-No, like describe yourself
    -I love you
There's no me without you

it is important to continue,
but more crucial is to know
what to continue for
follow the continuity

the most important
thing in life keeps on changing
which is important
our youthful wit
so cerebral
guards our consciousness like a sacred
Discipline is difficult to learn
Ability to take control
Do things that challenge you
Rather than quit on your goal

Avoid unhurried temptation
Succumbing the worst thing you could do
Decide if instant gratification
Or achievement is more important to you
Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most
Written, spoken and heard
Give relieve
writer, speaker and listener.

But... they can also hurt.

It’s good to write down what you feel, it helps you cope.
It’s good to listen, you learn, help another.
It’s good to read, you learn
Complex indirect energy effects
Dominos tipped in motion from years ahead
Solar waves continue to rollover again
Subtle state flows felt beyond present tense

Self reflection an important order
To step forward in the right direction
Fear not the unknown events
Souls sewn into space with grace

Shadow self flexes when stressed
Amongst absent minded friends
Less of our conscious contempt
Form learned actions instead
