Poetry

Advice from a growing soul

This to the lost:

Don't try too hard

To find meaning

For once you stop searching

It tends to find you


This to the afraid:

It's alright to be scared

Don't call yourself weak

For more often than not

The ones who fear have faced the worst


This to the grieving:

Whatever you lost is never gone

For it will live on

In your memories

For as long as you need


This to the confused:

Admitting you don't know is hard

So be confused if things are confusing

And once you work it out

The accomplishment will be worthwile


This to myself:

Never change because someone told you to

Change because you want to

And don't be afraid to undo that change
