My World

I am from a world of self-loathing
One with more anti-depressants than smiles.
I live in a starving nation
Where we drink in the suffering of others. 
The scars on our wrists
Create pictures in the hearts of those we love. 
We convince ourselves that this is living
That our longing to die is acceptable. 
My nation is one of deep darkness
Where life is a used tissue
Crumpled and thrown away without another thought. 
This is the world I live in
Where living is just existing.

Check out my Tumblr... It's a little deeper than my real blog actually.

Any Human To Another- Countee Cullen

I had to write a rhetorical analysis on this poem, it's quite lovely.

The ills I sorrow at
Not me alone
Like an arrow,
Pierce to the marrow,
Through the fat
And past the bone.

Your grief and mine
Must intertwine
Like sea and river,
Be fused and mingle,
Diverse yet single,
Forever and forever.

Let no man be so proud
And confident,
To think he is allowed
A little tent
Pitched in a meadow
Of sun and shadow
All his little own.

Joy may be shy, unique,
Friendly to a few,
Sorrow never scorned to speak
To any who
Were false or true.

Your very grief
Like a blade
Shining and unsheathed
Must strike me down.
Of bitter aloes wreathed,
My sorrow must be laid
On your head like a crown.

What About Love?

Why is it so hard for people to feel loved?

Sometimes I feel like I live in this crazy, starved world, with people selling themselves for nothing, settling for less than they deserve, and giving themselves away. When in reality, the couple who has been together for fifty years and a girl with an abusive boyfriend all wanted the same thing. Love. We were made to love and be loved, every single one us in different ways.
Above all things, I think it is important to stay true to one's self, and to be patient. At least from my own experience, it's so easy to just date or get close to the first person you see, but this can land people in a world of hurt. Not everyone will love you, and you don't need everyone. Just those that respect, love and care about you, and that you feel the same way about.
Don't give up. Love is a real thing, and it will come with time. I have to remind myself of this all the time.
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is to love and be loved in return."

Poetry Blog

   It has been a really long time since I posted. I just moved into James Madison University, in my second week of classes, just trying to make friends and keep my head up. Since making close friends has been really tough for me, I've decided to turn back to blogging again to keep my occupied. So in addition to this blog, I have just created a poetry blog if anyone is interested in reading it.

Here's the link:

:) Please check it out and leave feedback, I'd love to hear what you guys think!
