"Someday your prince will come. Mine took a wrong turn and is too stubborn to ask for directions."
"I wish for a better world, where chickens can cross roads without having their motives questioned."
"Some people put up walls not to keep others out, but to see who cares enough to break them down."

Here’s to us.

To all of the laughs and the smiles shared,

The countless jokes and puns swapped.

I look back on those times and laugh.

Here’s to us.

To all of the conversations and texts exchanged,

The secrets whispered when the world was slumbering.

I glance back on those times and smile.

Here’s to us.

To all of the insults thrown at one another,

The hurtful comments we lashed out.

I gaze back on those times and cringe.

Here’s to us.

To the final battle,

The breaking point of our fragile balance.

I behold this with utter shock.

Here’s to you.

To your overwhelming stubbornness of never apologizing first,

The only way you would, being if I did first.

I remember that with tears.

But here’s to us

To all of those times now wasted because,

The only thing I asked for, the only thing I asked of you…

Do you really not look back on this and cry?

My first piece I will submit...

Not necissarily my best work but...

Everyone needs to start somewhere right?

"Sometimes you have to take life less seriously to get where you want to be."

Aw. At 1st it seemed real happy, but then it seems sad at the end. Maybe it's both. Not too sure. But it's enjoyable and makes you think back on your own life. Pretty good.
