Poem of the Day: Journey To Self Respect

I used to be like you, foolish and insecure. Unsure of my existence with no control of my emotions. A lack of vision that couldn’t see into the future, forgot the past, and unaware of my present. Living in ignorance, what a blissful inhabitance. Afraid of the world until I grabbed it by the neck and took control of it all. Now I have nothing but respect for the person that reflects back when I look at the glass. A man among boys, a king with no queen. A ruler of his own kingdom from now until eternity.

Why I Never Go Back To An Ex

I never go back to an ex or any female who has ever dissed me. Why? Because I move on but I never forget. I never forget that they had a chance to potentially have a happy life with me but chose otherwise. No matter the reason behind their choice, the choice was still made. I hold them accountable for the choices they made as well. It gives me insight into the person they are and how they deal with difficult situations. Only through struggle is one’s true self shown. I never go back to and ex because the relationship will never be the same. You can let go and try to create something new with them but who they are still remains the same. People make mistakes because they didn’t pay attention to what previously happened. So why go back when you know the outcome will only be the same, but you hope things will be different. That’s the pure definition of insanity and hope is irrational. Ponder that!!
