Find some peace, find your strength
find something you can hold.
Find just one thing about yourself
that will make you smile.
Take that thing and hold it tight
and keep it safe inside.
Draw from it when things
get dark and quiet.
You are worth believing in
you are something to behold.
You are everything
and you are more than enough.
You are falling now and struggling
with all that’s come to pass.
But you can overcome this
yes, you can succeed.
It’s always dark before the dawn
and the light will surely shine.
upon your beautiful face.
You will sing and you will dance
and you will open up your arms.
You will find some way
to find your way again.
Cold and hollow and empty
are just places for you to rest.
To fall down and rebuild
all that has crashed around you.
But hope springs up like a beacon
and lights those empty halls.
As you move forward, onward, and inward
in the journey to you.
You will be there waiting
when you find yourself again.
And you will recognize that
so very little has changed.
You will be who you always were
just stronger from the fight.
Your beauty shining
once you free it from its cage.
