“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Tumble and Tumble

Slip and Fall,

at the bottom

begin to crawl

Its become so hard

to pretend were friends

when I feel so much more

and cant make amends.

I lose my self

piece by piece,

biting my tongue

and keeping the peace

wish, hope, try as I might

I know this fate

is one lost at night

so I cry my silent tears

continue to hide my shattered fears

so you can never see

just how much this hurts me

Inspired by my friend Afra. Go check out her page here teenink.com/users/Afra.

To all those of love that just is not fated to be, or all of you struggling to break free, those within a tyrannical force, that lets up not for your fated course. I am here to show the way, to give you those and let you pray, show your others that we are united, and none shall fall till I have decided.
