Poem: You Did The Saving – 12/10/20

Be unique, yourself,
never try to fit in for the sake of being
like everyone else,
embrace that love and care you now have
for yourself within,
it’s hard earned –
I know this is truth,
all those years struggling
to be more than you believed you could be,
listening to that catastrophic,
negative, self-talking din
eating your mind through and through,
always believing there was nothing
you could do.

Now, I can see it in your eyes,
you’re so much stronger,
there’s no fear within,
you’re living for the here and now,
and seriously, for so much longer,
you have faith in your spirit and soul,
and know that you are amazing,
you are delightful,
you are wondrous and strong,
and that, my friend,
is worth forever saving,
these melodious tunes in your mind and heart,
they will always keep you company,
as long as you know that you’re unique,
and know that you did the saving.
