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

I realized
         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.
