Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson

You know I can't stand you
And I hate sitting next to you in class
You're such a distraction
You really know how to piss me off
And you take advantage of that
I love texting but..
You always text me!!!
Don't stop, it's fun
But you suck when you don't text back
You suck when your problems bother me
You suck because you know I'd get in a fight for you
It's funny how you suck because your not funny
I hate that I always have to be the funny one
It's annoying how everything is about you
when it's not
I hate the way that you now remind me
of someone from my past
I hate the way one look can make me feel guilty
I hate it when I'm sad because you are
I hate the way you tell me everything
And that it's barely reciprocal
I hate the way that I have a sudden urge to call you right now
I hate that you guys moved because now your further away
I hate the way you always lie
Even when you know I can tell the difference
I hate that you know me so well
I hate that you care so much
I hate that you text to see if I'm home yet
I hate the way my feelings matter to you
I hate that my opinion matters to you
I hate that you have to be so different
Why can't you be like everyone else?
And not care?
You make me sick!

Well if you paid any attention at all you'd realize that poem isn't really about what it claims to be about. Wrote it for my bestie, I won't show it to her though.

I really like this poem. It seems to truly express how many teens feel at the loss of a good friend. It's easier to blame than feel sad.
