thank you

have you ever sat down and took a second
out of your life and think of everyone who was
once or still is in your life?
have you every thank someone for being there
when you need it?
did you ever tell the person who broke your heart
who instead of showing you light they brought
you to the dark, that you thank them for that pain?
did this ever come to your mind?
because it has came to mine, and i
want to thank the ones who brought me
where i am today

to my ex lover, thank you for taking my heart when i gave it to you
thank you for carrying it far before you forgot the truth
thank you for showing me how it felt to be in love
and all of those sweet feelings, but most of all
thank you for hurting me and watching me fall
im glad you made me cry all those nights
trying to fight for what i thought i needed
now i open my eyes i know and realize
its not you that i needed

to my bad friend, thank you for trying to run my life
thank you for telling my deepest darkest secrets
now i know in this life theres not alot of people we can trust
now i feel taller, i even feel stronger, i can stand
on my own two feet, my mouth even open a little wider,
never again will i allow you to point out my dirty fingers,
when yours isnt as clean as well
again, thank you for being a horrible friend

to my close friends, thank you for being there for me
for letting me see how amazing i am
and realizeing theres nothing wrong with me
thank for you accepting me in your arms
and in your life, it means alot for all the love and grace
that you have shown me

i look back on these things, these people,
that has stepped into my life
because if it wasnt for you guys
who would i be?
i would be nothing but naive
you have taught me lessons,
that no one else can teach me
and im glad for the pain because
its led me to my right path
this is my future, this is me
thank you

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
