Don't be a victim; be a titan.


In my future
There is darkness;
An unfortunate fate I can’t deny.
In my existence
There is brilliance;
Somehow previously blind to my eye.
But when my future is no longer mysterious,
And when my stomach churns like the waves,
I come to my senses and understand
There is beauty in every thing, in every day.

This isn't really as wonderful as it had been in my head, but it's always like that for me.

If you haven't figured it out yet, this is about dying. Recently I had a mental breakdown and I *realized* that I was going to die. So now when I go outside at sunset, I can see all the beautiful things in life I didn't realize before.
Stereotypical? Yep. True? Absolutely.

Thanks!

And yeah, it definitely could have been longer :)

But I think I got out the basics...I was rushed on time and then too lazy to finish it later :3

Anyway, thank you for reading and commenting. I truly appreciate it!

"Live your art" -made this one up myself. Simple, but true.

I like this poem and it's really true. I think it could have been longer and described things, like the things before you never noticed the beauty in, but I really do like it. You're a good writer keep it up.
