You are Hope

What do I want?

I want to hold out my hand and stop your tears

Did you know it’s worth it?

Life, I mean

When you hold that razor above your wrist, tears soaking the floor beneath you, you have to know, people care

When black rain clouds shroud you with negativity, remember that it’s rainier somewhere else

Think of how after the rain tiny seeds will turn into gorgeous plants

They say names can’t hurt you, but they’re wrong

They cut deeper than any knife

It’s a cliché, I know, but there really is a silver lining

That silver lining is you

You have the power to make the world a better place

Life has hurdles, but it’s nothing you can’t find the strength to soar over

Make an impact

Be an inspiration

Everything is going to be okay
