I think I’d like to start by saying
love the skin you’re in.
You’re unique and this is your chance
to show what lies within.
I don’t think that you realise
you really are enough.
You’ll find you’re quite resilient
when times seem bleak or tough.
Don’t try to hide yourself;
A young unconfident girl
is only ever a pen stroke away
from making her mark on the world.
You’ve got a voice, so use it
And make the most of your words.
Find time to listen to others.
Each one of us can be heard.
Try to not hesitate
for in fear no freedom’s found.
Let your mind drift to the stratosphere
But keep your feet on the ground.
One day you’ll tell yourself
that you are free to choose yourself.
To walk your path, there’s no-one else.
You need to walk alone.
Forget the past, resistance melts.
It’s not a game, no cards were dealt.
The tides will ebb and flow and swell
Then you’ll see you have grown.
I hope one day you’ll know
that there are those who love you so.
Remember that if you feel low.
Open up more.
Oh my dear impressionable me,
have some faith and you will see
that good things come to those who try.
Don’t just sit there and
let life pass you by.
Love me. xxx
