A Poem For Everyone

Just Keep Going

J

Just Keep Going

Even if you think you can't go on, even if you think your mind is fading, I want you to stand up, just keep going. Regret won't change what happened, and anxiety won't change your future. So stand up now, just keep going. The fact that you've made people smile, the fact that you've come this far, the fact that you're still alive, just keep going. Say it every day, I know you can do it. Even if it sounds cliche, just keep going. Even if it's for a day, for a week, for a month, or for a lifetime, just keep going. So get up, a nice breeze is blowing. Even if the world ends tomorrow, just keep going. Even if people resent you, even if you'r

If I Could Forget

I

If I Could Forget

If I could choose to forget, if I could choose to never remember, what kind of person would I become? Would I become someone better? If I could forget my past, I would no longer be haunted by my mistakes. I would focus on the future, I would no longer fear heartbreaks. If I could forget how to love, I would no longer be attached. I would not be afraid of loss, and my heart would stay intact. If I could forget how to cry, I would no longer feel weak. I would not hate myself so much, and life won't seem so hopeless and bleak. If I could forget my past, I would have nothing to fear. I would have nothing to remember, I would have nothing to hold dear. If I could forget how to love, I would no longer care. I would no longer have false hopes, I would never fall into despair. If I could forget how to cry, I would no longer feel pain. There would be no need to pretend anymore, and no more facade to maintain. However, If I forgot my past, I would never become stronger. I would

My Valentine

My Valentine

I love you so much, my honey. You are my sweetheart. I love everything about you, I just don't know when to start. When I first saw you, I no longer felt any pain. Even the sun came out, chasing away the rain. On this Valentines Day, I finally won't be alone. Because I still have you. My lovely Toblerone.

The Chicken

T

The Chicken

Why did the chicken cross the road? Why would it cross the road? What was the chicken thinking? Did the chicken not know that the road was dangerous? Was the chicken running from something? Or was the chicken running towards it? What was the chicken hoping to find on the other side? What is on the other side? A better home? A better life? What does the other side mean? Are we the chicken? Are we the chicken, desperately trying to cross dangerous roads to achieve our goals? Will whatever that is on the other side make life better? Does it even exist? When will the time come where we finally reach the other side? What would we f

My Savior

My Savior

I was hiding in the shadows, with a depressing melody. I was hiding from the devil, who was my deadly enemy. I heard him call for me, and a tear rolled out my eye. Only then did I realize, I wasn't ready to die. I could hear the screams of pain, that were muffled by the outside rain. I covered my ears and continued hiding, ignoring the devil growling my name. Finally my savior came along, his light shining through the night. His power beaming so strong, the devil ran out of sight. He then took me by the hand, and saved me from hellfire. But he told me I was damned, and that his power would soon expire. He sacrificed himself for me, a hum

Again

Again

I was standing by the water, thinking of them again. I plucked off the petals of my flower. I wondered if it felt the same pain. I got bored waiting for their return, so I turned and walked down the lane. I wondered: In another time, would they have chosen me again? I watched the flowers by the road, that danced cheerfully in the wind. I felt a little warm inside, as if I was holding their hand again. I plucked off the last petal of my flower, but then it started to rain. I felt like I would do anything, just to be with them again. I opened up my umbrella, which used to be their cane. I wondered: In another time, would they do it all ov

Rejection

Rejection

Since a long time ago, I stopped feeling excited for 'tomorrow'. Everything just felt so slow, and rainy days no longer ended with rainbows. I used to feel happy, nearly every single day. But now I just seem to be surviving, fighting everything that stands in my way. No matter what I do, I seem to never do it right. I think of what I could've done better, and that keeps me up at night. I had great imagination as a child, that it became creativity. But now every single night, it becomes anxiety. I'm scared to knock on doors, or to call and ask how they're doing. I don't even dare to give suggestions, because I'm scared that it'll be ruine

Angel Blade

Angel Blade

I invited him out again, along with his other friends. With him I felt no pain, It felt like my soul was cleansed. Instructions were given, along with a knife. I wanted to reach out to Heaven, I wanted to show them my demise. I would finally be happy, I could feel it in my heart. Brandishing my angel blade, I slowly sliced it apart. Dark liquid began to flow, slowly dripping onto the floor. My true form then started to show, it ordered me to cut some more. I picked up my knife again. I needed to make haste. Then I slowly cut myself another slice of cake.

Why Don't They See?

Why Don't They See?

People say life is hard, I just think it's cruel. I always feel so tired, but I still have to go to school. I used to have friends, but now they're getting less. They've left me one by one, why is my life such a mess? I can't talk to anyone, I can only look at the ground. I feel like I'm a ghost, haunting this school compound. I see no hope in life, I see no hope in myself. No one takes me seriously, but they still want me to excel. They're always happy with each other, but they look away from me. Am I that disgusting? Is that what they see? "Just smile," "Just be yourself," I've forgotten how to do both, can't they see I need help? Ev

I Remember

I Remember

There was a time, when I was a child, I would always be excited, and anything could make me smile. I would stay up at night, anticipating the road trip the next day. I would look out my window at the city of light, and imagine running over the hills and far away. But one night he returned, drunker than ever before. He hit me so hard I fell down the stairs, spewing blood all over the floor. I hated him so much, I wanted to stab his heart and liver. But there was nothing I could do, for I was too small to reach the drawer. Now I still stay up at night, imagining what I could've done. I still look out my window at the city of light, wonderi

Reborn

I was a happy child, but then I lost my spark. Everyone I trusted pushed me aside, and left me alone in the dark. I walked through the darkness, with voices saying I was dead. I remember lying to myself, that they were only inside my head. I had no one to trust, I had nowhere to go. Suddenly I felt something, resonating from my soul. I didn't want to die. I wasn't ready to go. Then a ladder fell from the sky, saying it would take me home. I climbed and I climbed and I climbed, reaching the light and living again as my wishes. I reached the top and pushed myself up, like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Now I live in the light, I've been

A Message To Everyone

A Message To Everyone

Hello, people of the world. Today, I've decided to send a message- one that might make people feel different about me as it is unlike my usual behavior or posts, but I never cared about what people think, so let's dive right in. The world is changing, and not in a good way. Some of you know it, some of you have felt it, and some of you are oblivious to it. Earth is now the warmest it's been in some 120,000 years. Eighteen of the last 19 years have been the warmest on record, and whose fault is it? Humans. Ice caps are melting, which causes the sea levels to rise. There are places where people experience exceptional drought, storms, and re

Plans For The Future

Plans For The Future

Hello, people of the world, I hope you're all doing well. I've been going through an existential crisis for a while (so nothing different, to be honest) but I've decided to put all my thoughts into a journal. If any of you even read this, I hope you can give me some advice or share some of your thoughts with me. I started out as a meme-posting account around 2016, because I just found them really funny at that time. I didn't really socialize online (or in real life either) so the meme posting just continued for almost 2 years. Sometimes I would post my drawings, but that was very rare. I didn't like my art style back then, and I still don't feel 100% comfortable with it now. Then I posted my first poem on the 28th of May (which is actually the day this journal was made, so happy anniversary! :XD: ) and I just went..."Hey, I like writing poetry!" Now, I have been drawing since 2012, and I have written dozens of my own comic books which will NEVER see the light, because they are
YouTube was too loud so I lowered the brightness. I am big brain.
Dear Eclipse, why must you make my art quality drop to zero?
