Ideas are worth sharing and exploring with other people.
To sit down and digest someones opinions that you might not agree with is priceless.
Gaps and oppositions are divides that leave us feeble,
And to separate and segregate from others is nothing but meaningless.
I have shared my thoughts, provided my side of experiences.
You have listened and digested, maybe commenting with a tone that's serious.
I have read many of your poems and stories and tried to comment on them all,
And wondered, who was the person that wrote these, that's behind a wall.
I wonder what's their passion, their experiences or their way of life?
Could I empathize, get along with or would I just pass them by?
I wanted to write this to say thanks to the many people who have read my poems.
They took their time to have an effect on my life.
Without them I would not continue to write these; and I thank them.
I wanted to share, with some, that it's always worth the fight.
That life can be hard and love can be harder,
And the process to get better, you can always falter.
You have to keep pushing, keep growing, keep fighting.
Develop yourself, your ideals and keep striving.
This doesn't come naturally and it's uncomfortable at first.
It might be a long time before you find something that works.
DON'T STOP, DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T BREAK.
You can be yourself and you don't have to fake.
It's hard to see that sometimes and I just wanted to remind you all,
Those comments and those shared stories are just what I needed, so thank you all.
If you are comfortable with it, I just wanted people to comment with a poem, story, song, quote etc. that they think would describe them the best. Just so I could "see behind the wall" and get to know some of you better. If you don't feel like it, that's ok and thanks for supporting me anyway!
