"One day, your life will flash before your eyes; make sure it's worth watching."


There was a time
When I let my mind play the devil
And sand filled my heart
Where it was otherwise empty
There was a time
When I believed
I would always be
Alone

And after years of
Being lost at sea,
Drowning,
Deep in the sand of time
I realized I am so much more
Than just another cracked shell
On the bottom of the ocean shore
I am more than an abandoned ship
Sunken in the depths of the sea

I do not believe that I am the brightest fish in the sea,
Nor do I have the most beautiful scales
Or best sense of humor
And I'm sure I do not have the biggest heart:
There is always someone, somewhere
Who is smarter
Prettier
Funnier
And they are happy

But there are also people that you are
Prettier than
Smarter than
And funnier than
And they are happy, too

So if there are over
7 million beating hearts in the world
14 million eyes that search for love
3.5 million better than you in every way
And 3.5 million that don't come close to everything you're made of
And so many of these people
Have Found a way to fill their hearts with something
Other than sand
Why should you be any different?
