You may be
And lost
And tired
And lonely

You may want to lay your head to rest
And shut your eyes
And shut your heart
And fall asleep
And forget
That once made you cry

You may be full
Of nightmares
And demons
And voices that scream in the middle of the night
And empty shells of what once was hope
And happiness
And love

But you are also
And learning
And changing
And feeling

And you there are so many things
You haven’t done
So many places
You haven’t been
So many laughs
To laugh

So many tears
To cry

And you are made
Of stardust
And flowers
And rainy afternoons
By the fireplace

And you are as beautiful
As the shooting stars you wish upon
And the angels you dream about at night
And the snowflakes falling on your fingertips

And all the landscapes were made for your eyes
The rain was made to caress your weary skin
And this world was made for you

For your lovely touch
And your curious gaze

And when you smile
The stars shine a little brighter

And when you cry
The clouds, somewhere, cry for you

And you deserve
To look in the mirror
And see

Someone beautiful
umm so lately I've been thinking a lot about how I need to love myself more
so I wrote this as sort of a reminder for myself! But it isn't inspired on myself. This goes out to all of you, alright?
You are all beautiful and lovely and you deserve to be loved and to be able to love yourself.
I've seen so many people say they're worthless and they're trash.... and i can't do much, but i just hope you'll all be able to smile sincerely one day.

i hadn't written anything in ages haha ;;

This is so beautifully well-written. :heart: It's highly visual, it's deeply touching, it flows well and it has a wonderful message. Everything a great poem should be. :)

I went through most of my childhood not loving myself enough either. It's something that is majorly important, and I am very glad to see someone spreading the message in such a beautiful way. I hope that you are able to love yourself even better as years pass, because you seem like a wonderful person. I know this will inspire others like myself to keep going in our journey with it too. Thank you.

I am a writer myself, but I write novels instead of poems. I used to play around with poetry, but I don't have anywhere near your level of talent. You really did an excellent job. :aww:

Have a wonderful day, dear. :rose:

aaaaaaaaa I've just had this comment laying around in my inbox for so long because it's so sweet ;vvvvv;
First of all thank you for taking the time!

I'm very glad to hear that. If I could inspire just one person in that way, that's the best thing I could ever ask for. Self esteem is often underrated! It can be really hard to start loving one's self, but it's important to try. I'm glad to hear you have realized this <3

Ah well, to be honest I don't write very often! I'm more of a visual artist. Sometimes inspiration strikes and I just start writing. it's always come naturally to me,,, I guess it must be because I read a lot?
Thank you so much once again :heart: you too, keep up the good work! you seem like such a lovely person too :iconsweethugplz:

Awww!~ ;v; you are most welcome sweetheart! I am so glad to hear that!

Yes, you did a beautiful job. I am so glad to hear you have realized it as well, and then spread the message out to help others <3 ;v;

Aww, well, I think it is definitely a result of you reading a lot, and I think you have quite a bit of natural skill when it comes to writing! I am more of a writer than a visual artist, but I do both when I can :aww: I just wish I had time for more art to post here, but I haven't lately. Maybe soon ^^

You are so welcome dear :huggle: I am so glad you were uplifted by my comment. It's my pleasure. ^^ When I see talent, I am sure to let the person know. ^_^

Bless your heart :heart: Have a wonderful day once again. :rose: And sorry for the late reply!

There is too much sorrow in the poetry on here- it's the love of life and the world and nature that uplifts our human spirit <3 I hope to write poems like this that push through the clouds like a ray of sun and make people see that there is always light if we seek it! <3

Oh wow... I can't even describe how I feel after reading this... I would say the same as Livba... It made me happy sad. 
I actually read this while listening to this song… which is stuck in my head for few days and it describes me so much... And it even made this much deeper, it got into my heart and shaked it so hard that I felt it. I love this. Really. 
I wish I would be able to act according to this. I just don't know how. I tried so many times, and it has never ended up well. Maybe another time...
Just thinking right now... This would be a perfect song... I would listen to it all the time... Geeh, it just made me want to write something too. If I would have such a great imagination and everything else... Well, and a really good english level. Maybe one day...
Anyway, it's really beautiful. You deserve to be happy. So be happy :) And loving yourself is the biggest move to it. 
I love you :heart:

wwwwwww your comment is just so sweet and thoughtful, thank you so much :heart:
That's a beautiful song, wow. i'm tearing up just now :')
Loving yourself is really hard, I know it well. And it sounds so simple... But what's important is that you always keep trying. I may not know you too well, but as far as I've seen you're really kind and sweet and wow, you really deserve to love yourself. And I think you should try writing sometime!  u v u
i love you too <3

You don't need to thank me, I love how you wrote it and it's just so perfect :heart:
It is, I felt in love with it... It's like my life in a song...
Thank you, you're so kind to me. I wish I could, I just can't get through my past and well, my personality isn't helping it either. But I'm trying, I don't know if I make progress, it's hard to see it by myself, but maybe one day, I'll be happy.
Yeah I should, I miss it so much~~
Livba Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013
