Don’t be stifled, set yourself free,
You’re not who the world tells you to be.
Break the mold, loosen the chains,
Let the real you be all that remains.
With every step, fear will fall away,
You’re a force to be reckoned with today.
Out of the shell you have now emerged,
Unleashing your fire onto the world.
Melting anyone who stands in your way,
You make it clear that you’re here to stay.
You walk in the path you’ve blazed for yourself,
With no concerns for the opinions of anyone else.
Your inner beauty radiates outwardly too,
That’s why they can’t take their eyes off you.
Hold your head up high and brilliantly shine,
You, brave soul, are absolutely divine.
Dedicated to my friend, Maddie
