“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

We all think

We all sing

We all hope

We all sin

We all give

We all get

We all have a moment to regret

so instead of letting it hold you down

let it go, take off the crown

keep your hope

keep your light

keep your thoughts into the night

never forget what you did

learn from it

learn to forgive

I like this one a lot... only negative is that it's a little blocky but honestly it's still a great poem <3 Never stop writing!
