Random Poem:

Me. Yeah, I Said It. I Want To Be Conceited, Just This Once

Let’s talk about me for a change
I want to be the cause
Of the change in my life for once
Instead of simply suffering
Beneath the consequences of effect
I want to press my pen
To the pad that will set me free
I want to be there for me
I want to console myself
And push myself along
This canal of existing.
I want to be the reason I’m stronger
The reason I’m taller
The reason they’ll say
“Look at that grin on her face”
And when they ask why
Ill point to my mind
And say
I’m the reason
Why I’m alive.
