is kind of like
comparing butter
to margarine.

One of my friends showed me a really cool website today. It's like... visual poetry I guess. It's like a combination of photography and cryptic writing. I like it, though some escape me, make me feel a little perplexed.

Ah, according to my friends, I'm always perplexed. Or lost. Or idiotic. Today has been one of those days where at every turn you just feel ridiculed. They like to tease, which is fine. I always do my best to brush it off (and I usually tease back), but I'm human last time I checked. And there's really only so much of that I can take without feeling completely torn down.

Anyways, a website for my fellow bloggers:
A Softer World


  1. Self-confidence is a pedestal easily toppled.
    Keep getting up, no matter how often you fall.

  2. Being "torn down" - there is a poem in that line. As my buddy Graven just wrote - get up and go on.

    Mostlye...Keep writing!

  3. Your poem is ideal. The men above gave you good, keen advice.
