"Let us remember as we chase our dreams into the stars that our first responsibility is to our Earth, to our children, to ourselves." -George W. Bush

This means to me that before we let ourselves fade, we must take care of ourselves and others.


Someday
When the world
is no longer
violent
angry
judgmental
towards me

I will live shamelessly

Someday
When you realize
You are not perfect
I really did love you
And that what you want
is not
what you need

I will be with you

Someday
When my heart
isn't fighting my
mind and
my spirit is no
longer broken
beyond belief

I will live happily

Someday
When I am
old and
aged and
scarred
from
love

I will live regret-free

Someday
When I am
On top of the world
Deciding the fates
of those who
did me so
terribly wrong

I will live kindly

Someday
When all seems
Lost and pointless
and I have
little to hold onto

I will remember
when I wrote this
and smile
a thousand smiles

and LIVE.

My name is Allison, this poem is basically everything I've been trying to tell myself for the past 4 and a half years but in free verse form, and different words.

For what the compliment of someone who criticizes you is worth, I simply adored this poem. It filled me with a combination of joy and hope, and it's very well written. You write with beautiful wisdom. So well done!
