On the outside...
Do not question anything I say or do.
Above all do not argue.
Keep all opinions, suggestions, ideas to yourself.
They mean nothing to me.
I know everything.
The more you retreat
and remain silent,
the stronger I feel.
On the inside...

The rose recognizes the beauty of the sunflower, all the while self-assured in her own. She does not envy the golden beauty for her appeal to you
She knows better - she has guarded her stem from the likes of your fingers and the fingers of those before you, and the ones that will come after
She knows that while you, selfishly and ignorantly, believe the garden to be created for you...

What if I fail
What if everything that I hope to accomplish
What if I really be on mtv
Would that change a “U don’t mean shit to me”
To you mean the most to me
Let me stop
Let me pause
I never did good
So I never got a round of applause
Always found myself behind bars
For not following the laws
It seems crazy I always wanted...

I’m sorry what?
“I said, you’re beautiful”
Why are you lying?
“You have amazing hair!”
It’s really not
“But it’s so curly.”
It tangles, it snares
I wish it straight.
I’m sorry, I’m not
“But you are!”
Why do you lie?
“Your skin is flawless.”
“I’m sure you don’t need it.”
You can’t se...

Don't love me everyday
For the rest of my life
Don't promise me the world
Or make me your wife
I don't need empty words from you
There's no need to exclaim
No want for explanation
No need to rid the blame
When you say that you don't love me
I feel nothing but relief
It resonates inside of me
Confirms my own belief
Unlovable perhaps, it seems
The way it has to...

The learning nerves!
A poem inspired by a confidence and self esteem
building course attended at Mhist in Bolton.
Destiny and desires designed the darkness into an eventual tangle,
of falsities and fears with which we wrangle!
Thoughts founded on falsehoods and threats that flowed like water to the deepest depths,
fantasies we fear are facts that leave us of true h...
