There are people you will meet, who cannot be your light.
People who aren’t happy, who are looking for a fight.
If you show another kindness, and they aren’t kind to you,
Do not let their attitude, reflect on things you do.
If you give a smile, and a smile’s not returned,
Do not let negativity, be the lesson that you learned.
If you’re focused on a dream, and they tell you it’s too hard,
Do not let their words, leave you marked and scarred.
If you’re completely honest, and someone tells you lies,
Do not let their character, show in your own eyes.
If you love another, and they don’t love you back,
Do not let that person, turn your heart from red to black.
If you’re working hard, while another is at rest,
Do not let that person, make you stop trying your best.
If you’re seeking knowledge, and another calls you names,
Do not stop your seeking, to join in their cruel games.
If the beauty of your soul, is too much for one to take,
Don’t ever change yourself, into someone who is fake.
All my love,
