I don't need to be saved.
I don't need to be told I'm broken,
for I know that better than most.
I am aware I am hurting,
and that there are fake smiles that never reach my eyes.
However, I don't need a great love to be better.
Not romantically anyway.
Though it would be nice,
I value self-love above lust.
I am getting better, day by day.
By myself, for myself.
Though I still hurt and let tears run rampant,
I am me, and I believe that to be poetic of sorts.
I feel pretty with my makeup,
mysterious with my clothes,
experienced with my heartache,
and alluring with my inner demons.
I don't need to be saved, I need to do the saving.
I'm in a very good place right now, and I believe I can make it even better. I believe, truly, that each of us can find our own slip of happiness. As one who has struggled with depression and OCD, I know the full extent of the ain. You have all helped me through my pain by, loving the darkest parts. With deep regards and happiness, thank you. I believe we can ALL be the princess, the knight, and the dragon all at once.<3
