Message from Writer

Hello! I love acting, singing, performing, and obviously writing. I love any books in the historical fiction and mystery genres and some dystopian (well I mean I'm open to any genre). As for movies and shows, I'll really watch anything with romance, comedy, drama, or action.

Hope you're having a great day :)

My Best Friend

My best friend lies
To herself.
She tells herself things
To make her feel better
Or to make her feel worse.

My best friend feels
Like she can't do anything
That won't make everyone happy.
She puts her own happiness
At risk to save the joy of others.

My best friend can go crazy
Sometimes, trust me I've seen it a lot.
But deep down she knows,
That she's going to get through
All of the hard times.

My best friend has big dreams.
She knows that could maybe try
And pursue these hopes,
But the thought of messing up
Messes with her mind.

My best friend is the most empathetic 
Person that I know.
She cries at everyone's problems, 
Fictional and real,
Feeling all of their pain, like it is her own.

My best friend loves
Herself, but is too hard on it.
She'll make herself feel
So pressured until she
Has to live up to the perfect image she wants.

 
I've seen so many amazing takes on this prompt, originally done by Poetri 
I hope you enjoyed!

    This is beautiful and pretty relatable. I love the vivid descriptions you gave! Wow!
    So would you have any book reccs. that are kinda similar to HG? I’m reading HG for the second time now, but when I finish it I was curious if you had any. Thanks!

    Nice! I love the short stanzas, the choppiness helps convey a lot of emotion. I also loved how each trait could be interpreted in a good way or a bad way, that adds depth. Lovely work and I wish you all the best!
