Not My Owm

I don’t go to therapy to find out if I’m a freak

I go and I find the one and only answer every week

And when I talk about therapy, I know what people think 

That it only makes you selfish and in love with your shrink

But, oh how I loved everybody else

When I finally got to talk so much about myself

Don’t be violent towards anyone ever. It can be as little as grabbing their arm and pulling them back in an argument. That’s still not ok. There are people who are physically and emotionally abused every day. Some who are abused take it out on other people like friends. Please don’t do this. There’s other ways of getting emotions out that don’t include hurting someone else. If you ever feel the need to hit someone or abuse someone in any other way just walk away from the situation and go on a run or write or do whatever helps you when you’re feeling a rush of emotions. It’s for the better I promise you.

specific action.

Maybe that’s when

you’ve moved on.

Now that connection,

growing stronger.

Happier than I’ve felt.

Right things happen at the wrong time,

be patient.

The right time will come. 

New Year Resolutions 

New Year resolutions.

Good concept.

Who follows through?

Is it just something you say 

because it’s the new year?

Or a real goal you

put effort towards

in the new year?

For some

they’re overrated.

For others,

they’re honest.

I believe they 

always fail.

Good luck

with your

New Year




Happy New Year.

New year,

new me.

Everyone quotes 


But nobody


puts forth

the effort.

That’s cool,

but don’t just 

spout out 

fake quotes 

because it’s 

the new year.

At least

be specific

about what

you want 

to be




Maybe this year

will be
