Isn't it ironic? We ignore the ones who adore us, adore the ones who ignore us, love the ones who hurt us, and hurt the ones that love us.


Dear Old Me,
I miss the old you,
The sweet one.
The one who didn't care what the others thought.
The one with a genuine smile,
who laughed easily.
Where'd you go,
Why'd you leave?

We are told,
to depend on ourselves,
because you can never be let down.
We were told wrong.

What tightened your jaw,
made you quit trusting people,
made your smile fake.
Made it where you can't tell the truth to others.
It would break you.
You'd lose it.
Would that be so bad?

We can't go on like this,
the walls are coming down.
No one's an island.
Come back.
She needs us both.

Love,
The New Me

“Gods of Olympus.” Piper stared at Leo. “What happened to you?”
His hair was greased back. He had welding goggles on his forehead, a lipstick mark on his cheek, tattoos all over his arms, and a T-shirt that read HOT STUFF, BAD BOY, and TEAM LEO.
“Long story,” he said.”

"Letter to Myself" is strikingly honest! To me,this poem is symbolic of everyone's struggle to grow up and still be themselves. Great piece!

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

I love it! The message is beautiful, and I can relate really well to it.
