My Prayer

This summer, I came to the realization that I did not love myself. The type of love that everybody needs in order to love another.

The truth is,

I haven’t been living my life to the fullest.

The truth is,

this summer, I came to the realization that truth caused me pain.

Since this truth, I’ve created a new truth, a prayer: a guide to self healing.

Be a model in this world. It is yours for the taking.

Give yourself hope. Give yourself love,

and forgive yourself for the mistakes you’ve made,

as you too deserve to be happy.

You’re individual gift is for you.. Receive it.

Embrace it. Challenge it, but trust it.

Your mind and heart has been fused.

So swim to your heart’s content.

Put an anchor to your pen, and

speak your truth.

You’re a bona fide member of talented youth.

Own yourself, own your body, own your decisions.

Own your truth.

And through perspective, enlighten yourself whole.

Understand that you must matter to yourself,

as you also matter to other people.

Internalize the importance of consciousness,

and as you flip that switch of light on,

be the sun in your sky on every windy day.
