A Man who wanted to buy an Ass went to market, and, coming across a likely-looking beast, arranged with the owner that he should be allowed to take him home on trial to see what he was like. When he reached home, he put him into his stable along with the other asses. The newcomer took a look round, and immediately went and chose a place next to the laziest and greediest beast in the stable. When the master saw this he put a halter on him at once, and led him off and handed him over to his owner again. The latter was a good deal surprised to see him back so soon, and said, “Why, do you mean to say you have tested him already?” “I don’t want to put him through any more tests,” replied the other: “I could see what sort of beast he is from the companion he chose for himself.”
A man is known by the company he keeps.
Enjoy, Happy Valentine’s Day
No matter how much I don’t want it to be
I am the person , inside somewhere, that my mother molded me as.
I cannot escape the inferior overtones I feel
I will not let myself ever cone first
When I go out in public, I will feel on display
As if I am so important that someone is watching my every move.
I will smile, all the while my heart feels sad.
Crying only to ease my insecurities that of which I need to know I am human.
When preparing my house for visitors, I am my own worst critic
I will never feel quite enough, or adequate
I will hear things like, ” you are beautiful”, yet never will I agree.
I love you will be in need to prove to others, I care.
Satisfaction will never be, for me, cause I will never be worth obtaining it.
Succumbed I will give up, give in, give it all
Without so much a word like thanks
I am the mold she set out to make, not on purpose necessarily but because
I am not, nor ever will be, just me.
