United States

I'm not sure where I'm going, so I'll keep wandering until I get there!
Books, Cross-country, Soccer, Music, Musicals, and anything somewhat peculiar.

Look at me

October 10, 2020


I was wrong
But hey.
At least I gave it a go. 

At least I took that step.
At least I made that choice.

And even though I’m falling

I’m falling due to my own judgement.

And that makes me smile

in this disgrace.

So my apologies
and my condolences to you
for being let down by me.

But I’m human
and that means sometimes

I’m a lovely little disaster.
I added a bit and changed the beginning. Nothing too big, but I think it sounds better.

    I love this. Too true. The last line is my favorite!
    Re: I remember Emeth! He was really an honest guy on the wrong side of the war. I've never thought about it like that. You've got me thinking for sure now...

    Replying: Yeah, it was really cool. I'm glad I got to do it. And it is very unrealistic!! I would yell at them every time, XD! Thanks!

    The last line is just really cool, and masterfully phrased! I like how this pieces accepts who you are, that you're human and can't be perfect on your own.

    re: No, actually it was a reference to my favorite book series. My name and pic is that of the main character lol. Also, what did your first comment mean?

    That ending, though! That’s so cute! This is kinda bittersweet, since messing up is no fun. But I like it!
    Replying: Oof, that sound TERRIBLE. It hurts pretty bad- but only when someone touches it or I move it. So, I got to sit around all day until I go to the ortho, XD. But thanks!
