From my younger years. Slightly revised.
|It’s time for me to grow up and make a change
Realize that life is easy to evaluate
Stop giving up
and never give in
Something I used to work so hard towards
But slowly let slip from my grip
I have let so much destroy me
and yet nothing lift me up
It’s time that I put that to an end.
A new change I will make
to be better
at who I really am.
To not fear myself.
To have no doubt.
To be able to look in the mirror, and not put myself down.
I will speak with respect for myself
But in poetry I will let my heart out.
I will allow no one to ever keep my happiness away
and above all
that includes myself.
I will love without fear
no matter what I must face
Because in the rush of my life
what I had once forgot.
No matter what
I should never lose my faith
I will be strong once again
But this time I’m not putting that to an end.
