Favorite Quote:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me- Philippians 4:13

I’m your favourite toy
You go no where without me
I’m old but you still love me
Because I’m different, kind o reminds you of yourself
I having that opinion of myself as being worthless….yet you find me interesting, unreal, magical
Like I’m the best thing ever
I obtain that feeling of pride, happiness, love, acceptance
But that happiness had to stop
It always does, everytime
The shiny, brilliant one came in
As I was thrown in the closet, torn, dust and broken down in spirit & mentality
My self-esteem came crashing down
To the belief that I really was worthless
Ugh…*tears* really?
Rejection from the last person on the face of the earth I thought I’d get it from
Who I thought really cherished me
I guess there’s someone better with greater value
Than I had to offer
I love you so I would want you to be happy
I’m just so sorry I got so attached
It would have been easier if just friend in my heart
But no …….
It meant more to me…did it to you?
I’ll leave you to play with your shiny new toy
Just one thing ‘Don’t break their heart like you did mine’
But wait…there self esteem is high
It’s just me.

The author's comments:
As you can see, in this poem, i used symbolism, the toy being thrown away symbolising me, i had a friend who i used to tell everything to, we had that connection, but our friendship was rejected by my sister, and fellow classmates, i dont know what made me adhere but i did, i started slipping away, until i was too far to get back to that place, it really did hurt alot, that shiny toy being my sister replaced me, that's ok, what i hope people will get from it is the lesson that "You don't have to live your life to please people because at the end of it, you won't be able to please God first of all and also yourself, who have to live with" Hope this helps people who fall under the bracket of people pleasers.
