laugh a little,
love a lot.
you'll get your heart broken
so maybe not,
but who am i
to call the shots?

sadness will consume you
if you allow it to.
happiness is a few steps away,
but it's up to you to find its path
& don't forget,
nothing will last.

take what you get
& work for what you want.
know that something will set
but waiting will get you nowhere.

be kind to those you love
so they'll know that you're there.

play the hand you're dealt
& gamble what you want.
learn to deal
because all of it is real.

learn your lessons
before you play them out.
know them thoroughly
before you get out.
written five years ago. my writing style has definitely changed, i think i wrote a lot more stiff & narrow back then. felt like uploading a deviation that doesn't revolve around a muse of some sort.

i went to a poetry slam heat tonight, & it increased my adoration of the spoken word, so i promise i'll write something half-decent someday soon.

It does feel pretty stiff, but it's so close to amazing! Maybe a re-write or edit some day?
