As I lie here on my bed, I take a quick look at the wall in front of me, fully covered from head to toe with pictures, magazine cut outs and quotes that all represent who I am. It displays the questions I ask myself daily, the insecurities I go through, the love I've felt and the emptyness I once had inside me.  I come to quickly realize that there is a piece of paper there, with the question, what is love? and it quickly hits me, love to me use to mean pain, it meant that one day it would hurt you and break you until you were left feeling nothing towards society and towards yourself. I remember that before, I used to never believe in it, I used to say "why do people feel the need to associate everything with love, if it doesn't exist?" It was such a strong feeling I had against love, that it quickly put a whole in my heart, made me feel alone, made me feel weak, made me feel absolutely nothing. But then my mind takes me back to when I met him, the boy who showed me how to appreciate things, how to live on the edge of life and to laugh at the rediculissness of it all, to enjoy every moment before it was too late. That boy taught me so much, he taught me the true meaning of accepting yourself, of standing up for what you believe in and he also taught me the most beautiful thing ever, he taught me, how to love back.

 

So for all you out there, what does love mean to you
