Gustav Mahler: If a musician could say what he needed to say in words, he would not bother trying to say it in music.
Bumper Sticker: Just because you are paranoid it does not mean they are not out to get you.

There is no reason I could find,
When searching in my teenage mind,
To hate oneself,
I can't find any way that it makes sense!

But some of my friends, I can see,
Are harboring negativity,
And how and why?
I simply can't find any reason yet.

I write this poem, so they can know,
How much I really love them so.
From now to death,
They'll be a part of my heart's family.

And Shakespeare though I'm surely not,
I've given this stuff quite some thought,
There's no reason for negativity.

The author's comments:
Some of my friends, I sense, have been having some trouble lately, and I'm basically telling them to SNAP OUT OF IT! We all love you, and you'd better love yourselves! I'm sure you have less flaws than me. (See, English teacher? Debatable and strong thesis!) Sorry if I sound for all the world like Dr. Suess. Some of the time, I'm not good with rhyme.
