Last night I cleaned out
My jewelry box
I discovered a bracelet
Sitting under great rocks
It was scratched and young
Silver and blue
Engraved "best buds"
It screamed I love you
I tried to remember
But I knew not who
Once gave me this piece
Of their heart so true
What Feeds the Heartba-bump, ba-bump, ba-bump, ba-bump,
Last Saturday I had a session with my counselor and we discussed being positive, saying "I will do it, it will happen," instead of, "I hope I can do it, I hope it happens." We talked about acting like it was just going to be, acting as though it was just something to be expected, just as one expects their heart to beat. It will just happen. Stop expecting, anticipating, and trying to dodge around failure. Yes, failure will happen. But success will too.
The small, pure, courageous girl inside me finally, finally feels hope and that
maybemaybemaybeyesyesyes this will happen and I will finally live my dreams.
And then my dad happens.
A different part of me punches my heart and ribcage and lungs and kidneys over and over, frustration at myself spilling over for being so bloody stupid and not expecting this or at least preparing for it better; I should be able to
