This, I actually wrote just now, and I'm quite proud of it. It doesn't rhyme, it might not flow well, but I am confident I've gotten my message across.
This poem is based on what I used to believe, not so long ago, perhaps only a year ago or so, and then through much contemplation, force, and work, revised my thoughts, my beliefs, until I am what I am today.
Part of this poem refer to a girl I used to know, and the difficult friendship we not so long ago had, and how I would used to tell her much of what was in this poem. I was always telling her, think posotive, and you can manifest a better day. I was always saying, believe and you can do. It was a hard friendship, a very strained one, for while I cared for her like a sister, I didn't trust her. We fought often, because we are both strong, bold, unruly sorts of people, and this clashed us against each other. One day, she crossed the last line, and I realized everything I'd told her wasn't going to get through to her, because she knew she could depend on me for everything.
So, I left her behind, not only in moving away, but...forever.
It was a hard thing to do, and while I realize you probably don't want to read this, I sort of need to vent. XD XD
So, I guess you could say that this poem is everything I've realized over the last couple years, and everything I tried to teach her.
And then the last lesson I taught her by walking away: you have to stand on your own two feet.
Oops. That got really long. XD I apologize for ranting way to long, part of this was me trying to explain what this poem was about, and why it's so long, and then I just sort of started venting.
I actually started writing this for a writing contest in InkedAnonymous, which is supposed to center around a realization that changed your ideals/thoughts, so...this is it. XD
