"We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in a cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it." - John Lennon

"In my end is my beginning."... - T.S. Eliot

I pity the pretties.
Because they'll never know natural beauty.
Never knowing their true selves
Just fake tans and boob jobs.
I pity the princesses
Because they'll never know the feeling of a job well done.
Never knowing what it's like to work for something
Just what it's like to beg Daddy.
I pity the plastered
Because they'll never know the meaning of fun
Never making memories to last a lifetime
Just feeling what it's like to be hungover.
I pity the presumptuous
Because they'll never know what it's like to be humble.
Never learning from someone who's better
Just because they think they're the best.

This was inspired by my realization of how glad I am to not be "popular."
