Favorite Quote:
"And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good." -John Steinbeck

I lay on the hot sand

I melt under the summer sun

I tell myself I am not weak

I do not surrender

I just am

I let myself turn into a gooey puddle

I belong to nature

This is how it goes

That's life

I accept

I Ignore what they say

and I listen to the truths of the Earth

The author's comments:

I wrote this poem for those who have felt defined by other's words. Also, I wrote this since I feel connected to nature often. I think nature is one of the most wholesome, surest things humans know. We sometimes listen wrong people who try to define us from a mean standpoint, this makes us sometines forget our true selves, so nature is a good place to help you remember who you are and to feel peaceful.
