The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won't be sunny, and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it's only in the black of night you see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, cause most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination. -one tree hill ♥

Why couldn't I see
What you had been doing to me
I wanted to believe in everything you said
But it is all a dream,
Soon to become a distant memory

All hope gone,
Knowing you were wrong
The lies broke all the ties
Your pain blinded you into saying "I love you"
My hope reminded me I love you too

Now you can see
The deepest side of me
You cannot change the hope I let go of
I knew I loved you,
But it was only to become a distant memory

I wrote this when I came home from a weekend long school trip where my boyfriend at the time had dumped me in front of 200 people just to hook up with a girl he had a crush on for YEARS. I had honestly thought he was going to be my first real boyfriend but a month in he proved me wrong.
