A Poem by NebraskaHope

Sometimes people can put a lot on you and still desire more. We have to have accountability over our own lives. its essential, its important.


it was the trees that whispered to me,


you're closer to home even though you have keys to your apartment in the opposite direction,

You are finally free from the wants, the demanding desires and no appreciation of doing the needs,

From people who expect yes constantly and rapido at that,

The branches spoke to me,

You gave and it was not enough,

Homeless individuals would be content,

So i guess homeless individuals aint what im dealing with

Spoiled brats, that don't appreciate a dime or a nickel

The leaves threw in their two cents,

When you give and it's not enough,

Not sufficient, not sufficing the situation,

Don't give more, don't give a care,

It was not appreciated,

The bark barked,

Stop reading s**t on social media and implying it to your life,

Stop personally taking words and placing them to you,

If they were meant for you, they'll come swiftly to your direction,

Stop caring when you've done what you can,

The sky had an opinion too

People want this world they haven't worked for,

They want you to give it to them and put you on the bottom,

Stop feeling guilty for splurging on you, for taking trips

And self loving you,

They should try that more,

The clouds came to speak,

Heal your mind and stop falling victim to the mind games,

A person shouldn't put all that weight on you and complain about having none,

The river drifted a thought to me,

You did what you could,

And that's enough,

Stop letting s**t get to the root of you,
