She’s Rubber and I’m Glue

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Sometimes you meet someone so similar to you that you're immediately drawn to them, only to come to the conclusion you were opposites all along.

Sometimes you meet someone so similar to you that you're immediately drawn to them, only to come to the conclusion you were opposites all along.

If only I could find the words,

The escaping thoughts to write away.

Perhaps I'd fly free like a bird,

And in my heart those things would stay.


But all of my thoughts bounce off of you,

Spoken only to hear an echo of sadness.

You've left me wondering what I should do,

Perhaps I'll give into the madness.


Why can't we share the mutual sorrow,

Bear the burden that we both carry?

Just look toward the new tomorrow,

Whether or not its visage is scary.


Won't you come take me by the hand,

We'll tell one another that it's all okay?

Let time slip around us like fine grains of sand,

And make every second worth it, now and today.


The fact of the matter is tried and true,

There is no arguing in the face of fact.

She'll always be rubber and myself the glue,

And this is not something on which we can act.

You Must Value Yourself

One of the most difficult concepts in this world to grasp is truly valuing yourself as a being worthy of everything you need and desire. Whether you want love and affection, or perhaps you want success and fame, you must first value yourself in order to obtain that which it is you want. I'm one of those many people who struggles with valuing myself, and sometimes I hate myself so much that I'm willing to destroy everything I care about just to hurt myself.

No matter what it is you are going through, I want you to know that you have value, and you don't need to seek that value within yourself from anyone around you. If you aren't finding the value you're seeking, seek elsewhere, and do not risk devaluing yourself in the hopes that the value will arise magically.
