Silly girl,
your different was your beautiful
all along


Life is unfair and unkind

Horrific and heartless

It is-yeah, yeah.

I know them by heart

That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do my part

I do have damned days

Damped by my tears

Wrecked by my plans

Fooled by my hopes

My heart is a survivor

My body is tired

But, I am still ready for this war

With enthusiasm in my eyes

Courage on my wings

A chant in my heart

Rebellion in my DNA

I am not sure if I will win

But I won’t lose.

I am mighty sure of that.

"and the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to. It's not that I don't feel the pain. It's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore. And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has and that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive." - Paramore (Last Hope)

This is one of the most relatable poems I have other read. Those last three lines were absolutely amazing and soooo true. Keep it up!
