Favorite Quote:
"Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final."

-Rainer Maria Rilke


The world,
Cradled in my hands,
I had everything,
That a girl could ever want.

I ruled,
Over everyone,
Powerful,
Peaceful.

Clueless,
To revolt,
They were forming an army,
In my own barriers.

No warning,
No preparation,
Just myself,
Against the world.

My soldiers,
Guards,
Friends,
Became enemies.

No longer my world,
My hands bled,
The world grew heavy,
I was losing strength,
Power.

Didn’t they realize,
They needed me?
Survival,
Wasn’t mandatory.

I dropped the world,
Gone forever,
The weight subsided,
But my scarred hands,
Left empty.

This poem is about how I used to be everyone's friend. But then jealousy got the best of people. I realized I didn't have any really good friends, just casual friends.
