From Future Self

Know that you are more

Than the sum of your mistakes,

The amount of tears can’t quantify 

Your nature or your place,


Let’s go back to the day you believed,

Believed in the promises

Others said they’ll keep,

The words that comforted

Only to watch you bleed,

A little more shattered,

A little more numb

You chose to be…

***

Darling don’t believe

The ones you hold so dear,

Especially the ones you keep

High up above without a fear,

They will be the ones

To show you what depression is like,

They will use your own words

To cut you in pieces with a wicked smile…

***

Know that you are more

Than the sum of your mistakes,

The amount of tears can’t quantify 

Your nature or your place,

Believe in your own dreams

Your power and yourself,

Know you are a treasure,

A real princess…

***

There will be days when

You will doubt everything,

And wonder why smiles

Don’t last eternally,

Although many things you did

Could have been done better,

But all those choices led to me,

And we are where we ought to be…
