"Don't gain the world and lose your soul....wisdom is better than silver or gold."

"You can always close a book, but you can never close the mind of a writer."

Here we stand again, my dear,
Yet you stand over there; away from my side.
Last time we stood, you held my hand.
In the past, you were my guide.

Look over here and catch my eyes,
See the anger and see the pain.
Don’t be afraid of the hurt you’ll feel;
for I’m only playing your game.

Save your breath and don’t deny it,
You remember it better than I.
Although you have tried to erase this mistake,
The memories will never die.

Don’t look at me as if you don’t remember,
There’s no way to forget our past.
I know you remember the rise and fall,
And I’m sure the heartbreak will last.

But I won’t stand here alone, my sweet,
While you think you have it together.
You’ll wish your past wasn’t haunted.
And you’ll regret your lies forever.

When someone has done something to you that hurts beyond any's always hard to accept that they're not suffering like you are. Sometimes you can only hope that it will catch up to them in the end.

Gerard Way: "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."

I love this because it wraps the pain and want for revenge you feel when you get hurt together nicely. :) I'd love it if you gave me feedback on some of my other poems.
