and when you tell other people this,
do not be offended when they start talking about muscle mass.
they will not understand until they wake up
one day and are disappointed to find themselves
2. reading books about thin people
doesn’t make you thin
just like writing poems about happiness
doesn’t make you happy.
3. make new year’s resolutions. even if you know
they won’t last longer than the shower
you make them in, do it anyways because
you’ll love the idea of the person you were
washing off of you with the dirt.
4. you’re going to fall head over heels
over ankles over fingers in love with a boy.
this does not mean that you have any right
to keep him.
5. someone won’t always be there to tell you,
“hey, good job on getting out of bed today.
good job on going to school and doing your homework.
good job on surviving today.”
but good job anyways.
6. change your hair color. change your signature.
bring your sister’s guitar into your room
and consider learning how to play.
draw a smiley face on your wall
and then hide it under a poster of a band
you’ve never listened to.
surprise yourself, then learn to trust yourself again.
eventually, say out loud that you love yourself.
you might find that you mean it.
7. high school isn’t about learning the quadratic equation.
if you get an F on a math test and spend all of lunch
complaining about to your friends
and they still smile at your bad jokes the next day,
then you are not failing.
8. the days will get longer. you will keep breathing.
you will be tired and you will give up
and you won’t run the five miles you promised you would.
but the days will get longer and then shorter and then longer again
and you will eventually figure out
that you want to be there to see them change.
what to do when he doesn't say it back
How to love a poet:
All in all, they're all very relatable. Unfortunately, deviantART will only allow me to this one time, but I'll squee over it at least five~
so true accept for number 7 (I my personal opinion... school can be really fun and its a great way to learn new things... that's just me im so sorry if I criticised )
but this is so awesome I turned 16 a few months ago so I find it relatable...your very talented, your skills are something to be envied.... instant fav, watch and comment
P.s if you cant keep the boy then it isn't meant to be and all that, so its better to let him go (number 4 is so true and somehow funny, looking back "LOVE IT")
Thanks for sharing.
One thing I always try to keep in mind, is to never stop believing... as it's only then that hope is ever truly lost. Time passes... things change... all of which is out of your control...
But at the end of the day something is only as important as the meaning you choose to give it, so never forget what the most important thing of all is...
...whatever you want it to be.
Concerning 7: ... don't fail school if you're smart enough to do it right. If you plan on making a living doing something that requires an education, go all out in high school so you can get into whatever college you want... then keep going all out in college.
