Favorite Quote:
Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Louisa May Alcott

My friend, there are times when
people you think were meant to be in your life
are really more trouble than they’re worth.
If you find yourself changing for their benefit,
If you find yourself fighting with them
more and more,
It’s time to let go.
You’re better than what you’ve been
and you have so much potential,
like a bird that has not yet learned to fly.
He’s bringing you down
making you frown,
making things more difficult for you.
Do what’s best for yourself right now.
Think about who you are and who you’ve been.
Find out who you want to be,
whether it’s with or without him.
Figure it out
and go with it.

This is a didactic poem I wrote for a creative writing class I'm taking.
