We enter this world ready


We enter this world ready to learn and grow,

Each of us vulnerable to information we do not yet know.

While some are blessed with strong bonds and foundations from the start,

others must first struggle and fight to perfect that art. I did not grow up in a world of ease:

a life of happiness and comfort was a constant tease.

I soon realized what would mean the world to me,

and that is helping others discover what they can be.

While therapists do not always have a good reputation,

they are able to soothe and comfort those with an unstable foundation.

Helping people who cannot help themselves,

is a healthy way to make one feel better about oneself.

I would love to feel like I am saving peoples’ lives,

because people deserve to live and not just survive.
