I told myself so many times not to touch the light For fear of losing what I had with me But when I approached the flame, bright I finally saw what I wanted to see. All my memories faded into the white light All those unforgettable tales and fights They were all gone, and all that was left was you And I thought, “Where is this going to?” I told myself not to tell all the things I wanted to say Because I was scared and I didn’t want to see who I thought I was But, as a thought came to me, I told them anyway And out came the real me, without any fuss. All my emotions flowed out as words Words untold for so many years They flew out of me as birds, Birds in the form of my unshed tears. I used to tell myself I couldn’t be myself in front of them And that I couldn’t do it anyway. But here I am, laughing again, Saying all the things I wanted to say. ˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆˆ
Here’s what I have to say.
Be yourselves, even if people don’t accept you. You have to accept yourself for others to accept you.
Love yourself. It’s better to be hated for who you are, than to be hated for who you pretend to be.
Love yourself and everone around you, like what Jesus did to his persecutors.
