dear self:
Your name tells me that you're a pretty fossil.
Please don't let yourself
get stuck in the past.

-

dear self:
Your heart may have a missing piece,
but you need to stop searching for it.
Life's enigma has it already misplaced.
Find another piece that fits.

-

dear self:
When you fall down,
don't sit and clench your fists
in anger and hate.

You can't be helped up with a closed heart.

-

dear self:
you miss feeling like you belonged;
when life was almost perfect
and you felt you lived in euphoria
every minute, every day.


You wonder if you could rid yourself
of that sadness for more
than three hours.

-

dear self:
I know you are afraid of so many things.
You can hide things well in life,
but not this.

What you are most afraid of is yourself,
and that you will not become what
you wished you could've.

(You are afraid you will become a heartless monster.)

-

dear self:
Don't doubt your talents.
Doubting won't get you
anywhere but nowhere.

-

dear self:
You can make your friends smile.
That is worth more than the world.

-

dear self:
You have a right to shine
brighter than the rest
in the world.

Prove it to them.
from =Amertie's idea and =vampire-zombie's journal.

Amazing poem, dearie.

This is a work of art.

I think it's my favorite out of all of your stuff that I've read.

I especially love :
The third one because that one is so true. Don't close your heart because you don't know who you might be shutting out or what you might be shutting out if you do that.
The fifth one because everyone I think is secretly afraid of themselves. I for one know that I am. It takes a lot to be able to admit that though.
And the last one because it's true. You do deserve it, so does everyone else. They just have to prove it, not to everyone else around them but to mostly yourself.

You captured a lot of different things in this poem. Which is why I love it.

Now...maybe you should listen to yourself. You would become an amazing person - not that you aren't already - if you did that.

You know, it really is. I write so many notes to self, but usually end up with papers ripped into shreds.

Also, you have no idea how true some of this is for me. Especially the second. But I'm not saying it's my favorite, for i love them all <3

Same. Haha. I never listen to myself either. Like I give others advice but I myself never listen to it.

The first and third one are my favorites, they mean to most because I do them the most. Ahh does that mean we can relate a lot? xD I love youuu, man. xD
You give awesome comments btw
