That One Time I Wrote a Poem?

It's 12:05pm and I'm still in my pajamas. The most productive thing I've done today was take off my sheets in attempt to put clean ones on...that happened about an hour ago and I'm currently sitting on a bare mattress. It's fine.

For some reason, I decided to get out all of my old journals and look through them. This is one of my favorite things to do. I have one journal in particular that I started around this time last year and ended on the first of August. It's my favorite. It's filled with the most dramatic, funny, silly, random things.

On June 26, 2012, I was feeling extra melodramatic... one of those days when your feelings get the best of you. I wrote this "poem" (I guess that's what it what be called) not thinking anyone would ever ever see it. But 6 months later, I'm sharing it with the entire internet because I love it. It's not especially well written or inspirational, but it's so real.

Don't want to be tied down.
Want to love.

I have my whole life to marriage!
I want to start now.

My expectations are too high.
He's got to be out there somewhere.

Be patient.
Get out there!

Be yourself.
Be better.

Love yourself.
Fix yourself.

Trust God.
Play God.

Want, desire.
Need, can't live without.
