For the Love of Me

In the past couple of months, I have done a lot of self-reflection, in doing it I have made many changes in trying to find my true self. While doing this I have tried to figure out the mess of my love life, I still haven't truly figured out either so I decided to write a poem about it.

Fall for DIY (Pinterest)

I could sit here,

Picking petals off of flowers

Debating your love for me-

Until my hands go numb.

But it will always end in

"he loves me not."

I pick up the pieces and

Restart with the next-

I am met by the same fate,

The ending never changes,

But I do.

Like a chameleon,

My colors shift.

The glue between pieces becomes


A fresh coat of ebony mascara is

Painted on.

New crimson bricks are added

To the walls.

Recently polished armor

Covers the scars of

The past.

A new image of me is born.

A contemporary exterior is created,

With a familiar interior,

Lingering within the shadows.

Sometimes I dream of the past,

Of a previous me.

I try to remember who she was,

What did she love?

It's hard,

She feels distant and


I wonder when the day will come along

Where I will love me?

When I will look at my changes

As growth,

Instead of hiding.

The day when someone comes along,

With claims that they love me,

Will they love me or the most recent changes,

I've made to myself?

You are not alone - NY Yankees charge their players for WIFI on flights

It was recently in the news that the NY Yankees do not provide free wifi for their players on away game flights!!! That's earth shattering news because teams usually charter flights for their players, coaches, and support staff. These flights are typically equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and in-flight entertainment.

I Remember That Saturday

A memory that I will forever remember.


It was a Saturday night. We had nothing else to do besides be with one another. We were normally always in your bedroom watching television and talking about random topics that popped into our little brains. The only difference was, that Saturday night was nothing like the rest.
