Would You See Me?

A poem I wrote that goes into depth on how eyes are the windows to your soul, and the only people who you should love are the ones who fully see you. Addiction can take away so much, and this short poem focuses a lot on the inner demons addiction can bring onto a person.

Would You See Me?
Exploring your mind

-If I removed every inch of my skin-

And tore every fiber of my being,

Would you see me?

-If you took off your rose colored glasses,

And looked deep into my soul, my green eyes,

Would you still see me?

-If I laid bare and nude,

In the middle of the ocean afloat-

Would you love me?

-If I stood in front of you,

Exposing all my inner demons,

Would you still love me?

-If I cried for you,

Showed you inside who I really am-

Would you see me?

-If I endeavored to move on,

And let go of the pain in my past-

Would you still see me?

-If I could touch your arms,

And remain your desire to feel calm and safe,

Would you love me?

-If I could remove my flaws,

Cut away the bad days-

Would you still love me?

-If I found the right words to say,

In times of desperate doubt and hardship-

Would you see me?

-If I dove head first,

And jumped from the highest mountain top,

Climbing every rock, finger's blistered,

Sweat dripping down my hot neck-

Only to reach out for you, and grab your broken hand...

Would you still love me?

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
