Don’t google your name. Ever.
Don’t “search” for yourself
on anything that glows in the dark.
Don’t let your beauty
be something anyone can turn off.
Don’t edit your ugly out of your bio.
Let your light come from the fire.
Let your pain be the spark,
but not the timber.
Remember, you didn’t come here
to write your heart out.
You came to write it in.
Sometimes, a lot of the time, there is no need to write when somebody says it so eloquently for you (that’s my excuse for this particular laziness, anyway). Not that I wanted to say this, but that it is a ‘hell YEAH’ reminder to stand up straight, lift your chin in, and live your life in defiance of those that would turn your beauty off.
