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.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
