To you, from me
I know how you wonder in your mind,
Thinking about the things that you cannot control.
I know how impossible surviving seems,
As teardrops fall down your rosy cheeks like autumn leaves.
I know how much of yourself you sacrifice to make people stay,
Even when they don’t remember your name the next day,
And I know how hard you try to make everyone’s life bright,
Even as you stand alone in the dark, so far away from the light,
So, I want you to listen to the words that I say
And tattoo them on your mind, even though they look like the difficult way,
You are enough,
You deserve your own love
You are a force of nature,
You are a powerful creature
You do not need someone else to survive,
You were born with a resilient spirit which keeps you alive.
