Wounds were never
             afflicted with
repercussion of syllable lesions..

No quite the opposite,
       Unfamiliar tastes on the
       tongue, cleansed improper tastes.
Washing ones mouth out with salt clears undue tastes..
One work a night
Trying to become the light
In another’s Life.
We can only try
To change the tide
In another’s Life.

The sun is shining, we poets are rhyming.
Others might be out to bathe, but we fill our sheets with creative parts.
This is a thirty second writing, as I am freestyling the way I am diving.
Had an Idea of 'freestyle writing' within 30 seconds, that's the result.

i preach about self love
when it’s something i lack
i tell you to hold on
when i’m not sure i can
i comfort your worries
while mine cloud over me
i encourage you to take care of yourself
while i struggle to stand
i teach you to love what you see in the mirror
while i can’t even look into mine
Remember
Who you are,
Who you were,
Who you want to be.

Love
Yourself,
Others,
Life.

Live
Long,
Happily,
Fully.

Li­sten
To your parents,
To your siblings,
To yourself.

Care
About others,
About yourself,
About the world.

Cry
Tears of joy,
Of sadness,
Of love.

Change
Is okay,
Is needed,
Is life.

Laugh
Often,
Loud,
Freely.

Be
Yourself,
Strong,
Happy.

Y­ou
Will be seen,
Will be heard,
Are loved.

Remember.
Love.
Listen.
Care.
Speak.
Cry.
Laugh.
Be
You.

This is a poem i wrote in a poetry class I took. I also wanted to point out that i do say "Listen to your parents" but I know not everyone's parents aren't what you hope they are. I wish you all the best, and i hope you all find someone who loves you enough to make you feel whole. If you don't think you'll be able to find someone, message me. my twitter is @tsunamioftears and my tumblr is smilingskeletons.tumblr.com

I can easily play
With words
With meanings
Twist them around
Randomize
Sometimes gaining gold
Other times, dirt
But one to me
May be the other to others

It's so crippling to view your
own value that is echoed
by what one or ones perceive
of you, the same one or
ones who don't see any
value in those around them
It's hurtful to see yourself short with such a thought in mind.
I know because I mixed with these dreadful people and I thought they were my 'friends'.
Thankfully I cut them loose. The damage has been done in terms on spiralling down into depression, trust issues and loneliness... but now I can proudly say that I am indeed healing!
I do tend to think little of myself now and then, but I know my value as a person. As a human.
I won't settle for anything less than what and who I am,  and I hope the people who are feeling this way will realise this.
You are far more than what others say, far more than what what you appear.
Just arrived at the doctors so I'll be back later.
Thank you for all of the support!
Love you guys!

I think it’s silly
And maybe I’m cynical
To wonder
Because to me
Life isn’t a gift
Life isn’t a right
Life isn’t a chance
given to us
The universe was just so
For it to happen
And it did
Weather we are lucky
Or not
One can decide for themselves
But as for me
I don’t want to think of those useless things
It did happen
So I’ll make of it what I will
Do what I want
Short term
Long term
Whatever the case
Not for others
Not for some possible entity living above
But just
For
Me

A smile or two
Counts not as a few
But a mile long road
Of "you must" and to do's

A picture worth painting
Is just as restraining
As a dog in a cage
Muzzled during training

Amidst the achievers
Are silenced nonbelievers
For those who protest
Are labeled "the deceivers"

A map of success
Is just paper at best
When your heart leaves a void
As it runs from your chest

As the clock tic tocs
Opportunity walks
Now you're stuck with the laughter
That muted its knock

Expectation demands
With transparent commands
Dont find yourself saying
"This is not what I planned"
Follow what makes you happy, not what others expect you to do! <3
