The pain that you carry in your heart,
let not anyone belittle that for you,
let not anyone rewrite the story that you’ve known,
for there is virtue in suffering,
and through your suffering,
you will see the good and the bad,
in all that you experience in life.
there is good in everything,
if only you choose to open your eyes to it,
whatever happens, happens;
fate is ultimately what we choose to happen to ourselves,
so take courage, chin up, and be bold;
let not anyone define your self-worth,
let not anyone tell you who you should be,
for you are perfect, in your own way,
and worthy of love, care and self-respect.
