How to live:

LEARN FROM YESTERDAY, LIVE FOR TODAY, HOPE FOR TOMORROW, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, KEEP MOVING FOWARD.

My Poem: Afraid to love

For what shall I do?
When my heart yearns to be loved
To savor the intense scarlet flame of affection
To grasp it and never unleash its chains
To extend its modest hand toward others
And accept it in return
Yet retreat from each oppurtunity

For what shall I do?
When each time you draw closer
And I no longer stand my ground
Fleeing from the words spoken inside
Fleeing to never glance back over my shoulder
With cascading tears of regret

For what shall I do?
When dismay controls
When fear takes place
Revealing possible dissapointment
Revealing my defective fault
Of being terrified to love
Of being loved in return

For what shall I do?
When I am terrified of the potential outcome
Or the possibility of giving my heart away
And recieving another
Of changing
Of being worthy

For what shall I do?
When I am the coward
Who is afraid to love
And be loved
