When I fall down, I try not to keep myself down.
I may not always be of sound thought or rational mind.
What I’ve done, I do my best to forgive.
I try to not let others down, and let them in.
I don’t know how to be human like you, but I don’t think you do either.
Practice doesn’t make perfect, it brings progress, and that is a whole hell of a lot better.
I write these words in off-key because I am tone deaf and can’t sing.
I ain’t got no rhythm, but you know what? That is okay.
I love myself; have to before I can love anyone else.
I want to be happy and free, but don’t want to condemn anyone else.
I want someone to dream of; I want to be something to be dreamed about.
I want to enjoy the way my skin feels tonight, be happy with who I am.
I want be someone’s hero, even if it’s only for one minute past a second.
I want to be all flustered, to have a need to have all the courage I can muster.
I don’t want to hate the world, because it is garden beautiful.
I don’t need myself to bring me down tonight.
I don’t want to forget how to smile wide.
I don’t wanna shy away when someone wants to hold my hand.
I don’t wanna be afraid every time I shut my eyes.
I don’t wanna forget to do right.
Every friend is beautiful, and so am I too.
I don’t want to be coddled, but I don’t need to be heckled.
My existence is vexing and perplexing, I don’t want to be alone, so I need some human connection.
I want to make my friends laugh with me, more than have strangers laugh at me.
With every word I write, I give a piece of my heart, soul and mind.
I know I’m not alone when I finally cry, it helps clear the cuts and the bruises.
Happiness is fleeting, but contentment can last forever.
How would I know sunshine without stormy weather?
When my friends are sad, I feel myself suffer.
I want to do what I can to make them better.
Even if it means not being such a bother.
Every day I’m getting healthier.
