If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

[source]I think this is my new favourite poem ever.
i can read this just fine, considering i english is my only language
but fuck i see what people complain about goddamn .__.
People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…

So you throw a rock into my life
and from the moment it hits the surface
ripples form all over the place.
the rock instantly sinks
deeper and deeper
Utterly surprised, questions rise
like small bubbles to the surface
just containing a single word:
But the surface is soon a far away place
and the light diminishes with each passing second
With no light nor sound
things seems to have stopped
at the place where they belong.
…and everything else.
How important one touch can be.
