"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the one who'll decide where you'll go." -Dr. Seuss

Am I better or worse
Than who I used to be?
A girl who cried nightly turned
Into a lust guided Queen.

What has brought this
Upon me? Can I return at all?
This image that I stand by,
This girl in a facade.

She needs to go.
Far from returning.
She may be me, but this me is
Not worth knowing.

What I know best is the strife
That lingers inside.
If that is what I know, so be it!
This Queen just died.

Writing is my heart-kill it like a wild beast and I will be killed with it. Rip it from me and it will die with me. But tell me what weakens it and I will make it prosper.

This is wonderful work. It's so defiant and revolutionary in tone, like people have to be when they are fighting themselves.

Wow...this is a really deep poem. It really makes the reader envision the part of them that "isn't worth knowing". It just draws you in as you read it!
