All Things Are From Ourselves

No one is beta by choice
Some are alpha by chance;

All we need sometimes
Is someone to save us
From the world and
From ourselves:

All things are from ourselves.

How I Met Your Mother

When we were together, it was your thing
When we are not together, it is my thing;

I never saw it as part of my idea (of you)
Maybe you saw me as part of the idea (of it);

Some people live their lives in a fairytale
Other people live their lives in a sitcom;

Then there are some
Who don’t live at all.
