Dances With Similar StepsOne often sees love and hatred as opposite forces; I daresay that is not entirely the case.They are like different dances, you see; In one way they're different, but in another they share.Both require immense passion and emotion; Neither lack their vices, visible upon each face.Whichever you need, pick one carefully; Blending the two brothers is only if you truly dare.Hatred is seen as bad, but oftentimes, it has a good reason; Mindless hate is hated by all.Self-hatred is sadly prevalent; There may have a reason, but it is hidden by misunderstanding.Hatred can, in fact, produce beauty; Dark poetry can paint gorgeous imagery of a dreadful fall.It takes a master to do that; Most just scorn hatred, for it doesn't do what they're demanding.Love is often seen as sacred and pure; However, it can be twisted, much like hatred can be.This sweet gift can be denied; More people than I'd like to recount have gone mad over this.Through madness, one can
The Miles Don't Matter To Us!The Miles Don't Matter To UsYour words always hit me like a ton of bricks; They drip of excitement, and they're extremely sweet.Knowing that you adore me, just as much as I do you, makes me more eager for whenever we meet!Our life together will be so great; Waking up to your loving embrace will be a lovely treat.And those who said it'll never work were wrong, because the miles don't matter to us!I care so much about you, even though you're far away; It's not always easy, as I cannot reach out to hold your hand.It's not always easy to comfort you when you're sad; Being there with you would make it easier for us to stand.Regardless of how hard it is, I know you're the one; No other thrills my heart, nor makes me as happy, in any land!And those who said it'll never work were wrong, because the miles don't matter to us!The sight of couples enjoying each other can bring a bit of envy; For though I have your love, you are not here.And though I love you to bits, sometimes I get a li
Friendships Are Like ShipsThe title is self-explanatory, and I'll hopefully be able to tell you why.Many are not shipwrights, so the shape of particular ships may wildly vary.The healthy state of a good friendship is lovely, but bad ones can be scary.Effort and enthusiasm all help friendships to proser; One only needs to try!It is quite simple for a bad friendship to sink your hopes, and drown your happiness.And a particularly nasty friendship could harm you even more; Nobody likes a liar.But enough about the bad friendships in life's seas; Let us inject a bit of peppiness!Not all friendships are terrible; In fact, most are not remotely close to that mire.A decent friendship can dull the blades upon a lonely heart, like a port in a storm.And though they aren't great, they're far better than the alternative: broken and sad.They won't inspire epics or sagas, but they also won't attract flies by the swarm.With some love and care, they can grow; If they do, they can become something quite rad.Moving onw
My Wild HeartBattle drums thunder loudly, like the speech of the Sky God!The Festival of Fertility is today, and led by a great man.The High Priest stood proudly, clothed in his regalia and rod;He leads our people by following his dreams, and as best as he can.Rattling the ceremonial rod, the high priest danced around the fire.Burnt in sacrifice to the Sky God were crops, fitting for fertile lands.Raising the rod above his head, he cried out, for divine favor to acquire.He desired for rain to visit our people, and to dampen our shifting sands!Though no tears fell from the sky today, the High Priest nor any people, are worried.Many are hunter-gatherers, and can still hunt and bring home freshly-killed game.Even the farmers did not fret, for the blessings of nature are not things to be hurried.Instead, we honor the Sky God; We cherish his help, and love his great and generous name!Loving nature like we do comes naturally for us; In explaining it, I don't know where to start.Our Mother Ea
