I've spent so much time
Learning from other people's
That I've grown comfortable
Living life vicariously
Through others
Instead of living life
Through me

I think it's time I learn to live
It's my life. Only I can live it.

Sometimes, you're gonna make mistakes.
Sometimes, you're gonna say the wrong thing.
But in time, you'll learn that doesn't mean you've done something wrong.
Sometimes, you're gonna crash and burn.
But sometimes, that's the only way we learn.
Now that you've lived and learned, you can move on.
So don't be afraid when you fall.
Go ahead, break down your walls.
You're gonna see beauty you never knew was there before.
Go on, hold your head high.
Jump up, reach for the sky.
And remember
Sometimes, there will be days nothing turns out right.
But someday, everything will be alright.
Jennifer Weiss Jan 2016
Not everything I dreamed,
has come true.
Not every lie I believed
has gone as fast as you.
But the way you lingered in my heart,
took a little longer to remove.
It took adjusting my expectations to your new part,
learning to live apart from the rouse.

Dear, hold your heart close.
Avoid bulls in china shops;
their thrill is short-lived.
