The Rock

I'm rigid, I'm rough,
I could be smooth.
I'm without emotion.

Without emotion? How could that be? I feel things.

Like a rock, I crack under pressure.
I change over time due to exfoliation and the many lessons human interaction has forced me to learn.

I am defined by my flaws. I am far from perfect, I am human.

Do you even have an idea how useful a rock is?

I'm the one you sit on when all the seats are taken.
The same one you lean on when the world gives you a cold shoulder. 

I am the stepping stone to greatness. 
The one who makes the difference.

They say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Well, I'm as hard as it gets.

Tough love,

The Rock

I am not a taker. I rarely take. I appreciate what people do for me, but i never ask for anything, no matter how small it is. Im usually at the other end of the table. 

I give. or at least i think i do.

i give a lot, maybe even too much. When i was younger i used to love Luke 6:38 from the good book. It says "Give and it will come back to you, good measures, press down and running over". I put this verse in my right hand and worked with it daily. 6 days out of the week, giving is a good thing. You can never go wrong with giving. 

So you would think. 

I recently gave too much[is there such a thing?]. When it comes to a part of yourself, yes there is. The worst thing about giving a part of yourself is; as soon as you make that decision to share a piece of you with someone, its gone. And you cant take it back. This time, i gave for the wrong reasons. I usually do things for people, or give people things out of good nature or because they needed help, but never because i wanted something in return. 

That was my mistake today. I gave, not out of kindness or because it was needed, but because i wanted something in return...Mistake Number 1.

GREED. i think that's what they call it. Greed. Even the word seems evil.

- I wrote that a while ago. Thought i'd share it.


Remember them, cherish them, hold them close to your heart, but keep one thing in mind. 

They are in the past 

For example, 22/11/1963, the day JFK died. By all means an iconic day, it changed the course of American history, but almost fifty years down the line, NO ONE CARES. You might think you do [patriotic?] but you really don't. what you do care about is getting through the next week without a relapse [alcoholic], or how much studying you have to do to pass that test.

Simply put: days come and go, its up to you to decide if you should stay with the days gone by, or move on.

I used to remember days (or dates) and i still do, its part of what is holding me back.

BUT its time to let go...

Here's to the Past.

Yes or No

No. In that moment, everything changed. I knew that i would no longer be there. Regardless of all the reassuring words and empty promises. It will never be the same. And it is OK.

Change is good. It can only get better.

I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams - Jonas Salk.
