"Ever worried about what the world thought of you?"

"Nope. I only worry about what I think of me."

"What do you think about you?"

"That I am a broken-eyed, converse-reject-wearing wise ass."

"Really? And what do you call yourself?"

"I call me proud."

"Oh."

"What do you call yourself?"

"I am the grade school version of the heartbroken girl, who can't play the guitar so she strums a ukulele instead, who can't paint so she draws terrible pictures in graphite that keeps giving way."

"I see you doing it again. Put the fucking pen down right now and stop it."

"Stop what?"

"Doing that."

"What? I was just writin-"

"You're cutting yourself to pieces with shark-toothed words again. Just because a sword is a beautiful, glittering object of honour doesn't mean it always has an honorable purpose."

"Do you really think I am a sword?"

"Nope. I think you're beautiful, glittering object of honour. And the thing with honour is, it makes the world turn to stare in awe."
So somebody stole my words today. He claims he wrote them. I was about to stop writing all together, and then I realised, that means he wins. He isn't going to take down my words.

I wrote this piece of Honour to remind myself what it means, and how what is honourable (the truth) always manages to win somehow. That there will always be justice in the world, even when you cannot see it.

EDIT: And he pulled down all the work! Thank you guys!! I could not have done this without your help!

I could probably favorite your work all day but I must go to sleep
(Please let me sleep TAT)
You just have this way of turning things into stories and I want to consume them all--in a respectable manner of course, I don't steal pieces because that's dirty >:V

"Honor and Pride" can do terrible things, but I know what you mean, you might read my poem by that name though if you will.

This reminds me so much of my best friend that I'm going to send the link to her RIGHT NOW. I used to date this guy that I haven't completely figured out how to live without (it's weird, completing a thought without his opinion) but he didn't understand me on the important things. He'd tell me it was just my ego or I was being stupid about something and I ended up believing him. I'd stop talking and tear myself down with my words. My bestie is not above using angry words (and a well placed smack) to stop me before describing me in a million wonderful ways. The guy who stole your work should be ashamed of himself. You are a great writer and I'm glad that you chose to continue even before the watcher army conquered :)

I am so very happy that you won out in the end, and that you haven't decided to quit writing, it would have been a severe loss to the world.

Honor has long been a centerpiece to the way I live, jus the way I was raised. But never have I heard the value of it so well described. This is beautiful.

Fantastic piece. Really reflects strength, pride, and confidence. Whoever stole something that you wrote obviously doesn't understand how weak that makes him seen; needing to survive off of others' work like some kind of parasite. I'm glad he was brought to justice; you really showed him. :)

No problem at all. We all need people to fall back on during the tragedies in our lives. :hug:

I don't blame you; something like this is bound to come as such a shock. Especially when it's your work; your very heart and soul that he was stealing. I cannot even begin to tell you how relieved I was to hear that he took it down.

I think you really handled that very well, if something like that happened to me or one of my friends, I would not be half as composed as you.

It wouldn't be ME I was cutting to pieces with shark-toothed words :disbelief: But it's settled now :D
