Favorite Quote:
If you can dream it, you can do it.


If you only tolerate what you already know
You are missing every opportunity to grow

Your thoughts are shrouded and clouded
and your stubborn ignorance compounds it
Nothing can penetrate your thick skin
But all the words I hear you say quickly sink in

Someone must’ve given you the right to be entitled
Because hard work won’t teach you to make others feel bewailed

There is one question I must ask: Do you think before you speak?
Or do you effortlessly speak words to make my eyes leak

THough you bring me down and try to push me away
You have forgotten I have a blissful reason to stay
So though you’re cruel and oblivious to your many flaws
I am strong enough to pry apart your vicious jaws.


The author's comments:
there are people who bring you down, people around those you love. You must respect them, though you despise them secretly; this is a poem describing the emotion of disliking people you must respect.
