Dust Yourself Off

A poem about best friends.

Dust Yourself Off

You lost yourself while chasing him -

the one you thought cared,

loved you for you,

and above all else

would never judge you.

Then, your worst nightmare

became your reality.

You never saw it coming.

It was like a train

seeing a car on the

tracks at the last second.

One moment too late

and bang!

Everything comes crashing down.

He was crushing you

and your strength was failing.

But you can get back up,

put the pieces back together.

He can't break you,

You are invincible.

Just a memory now,

one that made you stronger.

Goodbye old pain,

hello new happiness.

Come on girl -

dust yourself off.

He can't hurt you unless you let him.

He can't get to you unless you

make it easy for him.

You've got this girl,

stand up and be you.

No turning back.

Today. Today.

Is a new day -

to start fresh.

Keep moving forward,

don't lose your strength.

You've got this girl -

you are on your way,

to a new day.

I believe in you.

I believe in us.

Best friends forever -

I will keep your

spirits up.

Reminding you everyday

how awesome you truly are.

No more tears,

No more screaming,

Only smiles

and long talks.

You'll see -

I understand,

I've been there.

But you got me out

and now I am here

to bail you out

and bring your smile back.

The soft smile

that he took from you

just yesterday.

I can't believe he did that -

to you of all people.

Why did he want to hurt you?

He seemed so nice,

so loving.

He fooled us both.

But he won't get the best of you.

You are stronger than you know.

You see -

you taught me to be strong,

now it is my turn

to remind you.

My turn to be your guide,

someone for you to lean on.

I'll be here until the end.

I don't want to leave -

you're my best friend.

We've had our fair share

of ups and downs

over the years,

but I wouldn't know what to do

without you by my side.

You know my secrets

and my heartaches -

now it is time to return the favor

and be your absolute rock.

With us together -

we are untouchable.

He can't get you

while you are with me.

Come on girl,

be invincible.

You've got more strength

than you thought was possible.

Let's win this battle.

Fight for peace of mind.

You'll be all right -

the nightmares will stop.

He'll get out of your dreams eventually.

It just takes time

to weed out the bad

and let the good come in.

I know this isn't easy,

I had to overcome the dreams, too.

But, you will get through this.

I promise you that.

It will be okay.

I will be here for you -

keeping you going.

You can do this,

I know you can.

Through everything,

I will cheer you up.

This will all be okay,

I love you.

You are stronger

than the pain he caused you.

Your smile is coming back

and it makes me smile.

All our long talks

have made all the difference.

You are finding yourself again

and I have gotten to see that come about.

You are beautiful and loved -

forever and always best friend.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
