My life fell apart before it had a chance to begin.
All my dreams took the back seat to other peoples needs.
The ones others required of me to meet.
The hopes I’d wish to fulfill fell into heaps
as if into trash pails.
Never to be known or discovered.
Only to be forever sealed – covered.
A wasted life I did discover.
Allow your aspirations to become reality.
Don’t let others squelch your identity.
Realize you’re beautiful.
Believe you’re able.
Keep pursuing your dreams…
so finally they’ll be seen.
