Embrace Life

Open your eyes to the world around you,

See what others refused to view.


Don't worry about picking up the pieces,

They will all fall back together at the creases.


Your free time may not be free for much longer, 

So while you can, use it to get stronger.


The day may seem like it will never brighten, 

But the weight on your shoulders will soon lighten.


When the world seems full of dead ends,

Always know that you can turn to friends.


FInd someone or thing that, at the end of the day,

Helps to take every shard of pain away.


Make your own maps; don't use someone else's,

No one else knows where your path will go.
