Lovely Humans

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 2/16/2019

Growing pains are
Just that
A time for growth
Stretched out by nearly
Abysmal
Pain
But I think too often
I
Am so caught up in the pain
Of it all
That I forget to see the light inside
Of growth
Or to appreciate the changes
In me
So help me to remember
That waiting isn’t empty moments
That getting to know
Someone
Doesn’t mean that I must
Fall in love
Remind me of the grounding truth
That friendships are not
Obligations
For something
More
They are not
Handcuffs and tightropes
Not caged butterflies
Nor are they the start of something
Binding
But merely a breath of fresh air
Sent to remind us
That not all humans are
Needy
Not all men are
Insensitive
Not everyone has an
Ulterior motive
But that there are lovely people
Who desire innocent friendship
And nothing
More
And you, my
Dear
Are one
Of those
Lovely
Humans

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

I really love this!! So

I really love this!! So important to remember! I love the line: They are not handcuffs and tightropes.

Lovely

When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.

Thank you, dear! ❤️

Thank you, dear! ❤️
