The Way of Things

We cannot experience bravery if we do not first experience fear.

We cannot experience success if we do not first experience failure.

We cannot experience love if we do not first experience loss.

And we cannot experience wisdom if we do not first experience life.

They Said I Could Be Anything

They said I could be anything

So I grew into a tree

and I allowed my roots to grow

so they could touch the sea

They said I could be anything

So my roots turned to sand

and floated through the water

to uncharted land

They said I could be anything

so I grew into an whale

and breached at every sunset

for all the sailors who sail

They said I could be anything

and so I grew into a boat

and softly rocked in ocean waves

So easy to stay afloat

They said I could be anything

So I turned into a gull

and caught the many fish

Until my body felt full

They said I could be anything

So I turned into the sky

and I was shades of blue and grey

Content with being high

They said I could be anything

And so I was all of this

because I wished to experience

a life of various bliss.

Dream Man

I had a dream once about my dream man

And he looked a lot like you

But it turns out that you two are not the same

No matter how hard I squinted

I had a dream once about my dream man

And he talked better than you

Because I was only pretty when I tried hard

I only got the compliment if I put in work

I had a dream once about my dream man

And he held me tight and proud

But you only half held me, too preoccupied with the rest of life

Too afraid to give me all your love

I had a dream once about my dream man

He kissed me so good

And I waited for your kiss to feel good too

But It turns out your lips weren’t the key to my lock

I had a dream once about my dream man

He stared at me like I was a piece of Da Vinci’s artwork

But you stared at me like I was normal

Just your average Jane

I had a dream once about my dream man

And I woke up and realized he wasn’t you

So I walked away to go find him

Feeling of Entitlement

There is one thing you should remember

When you are sad and lonely :

Selfish people feel entitled

You are not entitled to my pity

You are not entitled to my company

You are not entitled to my understanding

You are not entitled.

It is only when you are genuine 

That you’ll receive my pity,

That I will give you my company,

That I will provide my understanding,

And that is when you are finally entitled. 

Beauty

With beauty, others will always feel she owe

And stare with shallow expectations

But Beauty sometimes beats her core

She awakes; sick of intentions

With beauty, others will always feel she owe

Knowing one day her clock will break

And that is the day Beauty will sing 

Her soul more beautiful than ever

With beauty, others will always feel she owe
