“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
― Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

When I trust in myself,
I'm polarly wrong.
Each winding turn
Is tremendously long.
Proficient in humiliation,
Subject to guilt.
Bridges crumble
With lies I've built.

Very well written with good rhymes. I like your meter and the length of the poem, it feels perfect. Good job!

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

This is really good:) Short and sweet,  flowed very nicely, and super relatable! I liked it a lot!
