Too Honest

Sometimes I guess you have to be honest with yourself

Too Honest
Huff Post

I wish I was okay

I wish I didn't feel so stuck all the time

I wish I could get over my issues and just stop

I wish it were easier

I wish I didn't feel like a train wreck all the time

I wish I could tell someone how I feel and it be okay

I wish I could just be okay

I wish I didn't have to hide

I wish I was normal again

But, maybe I've never been normal

I think when God made me

He threw away the pattern

I try so hard to be strong all the time

Even while I'm writing this I'm feeling weak

Because I'm being too honest about myself

And I'm afraid

I'm petrified actually of being too honest with myself

If I'm too honest with myself

All my demons come out to play

And that's way scarier than I can handle

I hate that I feel like a mess most the time

No one knows that though

Because I do my very best to be okay

But, I guess sometimes you can't be strong

I beat myself up when I cry

Because that's weak

And I'm not weak

I'm tough

I'm strong

I can do anything

I'm Hope

But, the problem is

Behind this tough girl exterior

There's a really sad

Broken girl

Behind this tough girl exterior

There's a girl who cries more than she'd ever let on

There's a girl who's broken

There's a girl who tries to piece herself back together

Every single day

The messed up part is I'm fine sometimes

Sometimes I'm totally okay

It's the times when I let my head talk too much

Is when I'm not fine

I wish I could just tell someone this though

I wish someone would get it

But, I don't even get it

Because it's not me

It's not the Hope that everyone knows

It's not the Hope everyone loves

It's not me

It's a sad version of me

I pride myself in being tough

I pride myself in being strong

I try really hard to be, too

But, sometimes I just can't breathe

I don't like being an emotional wreck

I don't like being sad

I don't like hearing my own thoughts sometimes

So I drink to forget

I drink to shut my mind off

But, sometimes it's just too loud

Even in the silence

My head is constantly running

I'm terrified my head will never stop overthinking

I'm terrified I'll never be okay

I'm terrified that I'll always be a train wreck

I'm terrified someone will see it

But, I do the best I can

I smile

I laugh

I try to be okay

But, sometimes I just can't be

It's those moments when I feel myself breaking down

That I get scared

It's those moments when I start to cry that I get scared

Because someone will see me being weak

But, they tell me it's okay

Maybe it will be okay one day

Maybe I'll be fine again

Maybe I'll get it together

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
