The whole weight of your destiny and your past.
Will crash down on you and make you feel like an outcast.
Read all the great books and watch all the famous plays.
You will still be left alone fanning your heart’s blaze.
The world is going to be cruel and the people unkind.
If they can’t see the light they will want you to be blind.
But don’t let despair and fear grab you by the throat.
Take one day at a time and learn to stay afloat.
If you decide to be strong and swim to your chosen shore.
Other people will join you and trust me, like you, there are more.
