When they mock your tears,
And sugarcoat every lie,
Dont dry your face in shame,
Sometimes it's okay to cry.
When they whisper behind your back,
And shower you with glares,
Dont let their jealousy affect you,
You'll find someone who cares.
If your heart aches from loneliness,
And you feel as empty as a shelf,
Don't crave for another's company,
You'll learn to love yourself.
When they make you feel weak and pathetic,
Remember, only those will put you down,
Who are afraid to see you rise,
And take your rightful crown.
You must feel confident in your beauty,
Despite the scars you own.
Dont go hunting for their approval,
All you need to have is your own.
Honey, they're all here to break you,
To watch you cower in fright.
Just do me a favour, and for heaven's sake,
Don't go down without a fight. ~SR
