how do i empower you?
how do i convince you that there is
more to life than boys, makeup, trends and clothes?
and how do i convince you that that something
"more" is actually worth going after?
that searching deeper within yourself will lead
to beautiful discoveries of who you are…
but first, how do I prove to you that
who you are is worth discovering?
how do i go against everything you have been told?
how do i stand a chance - to broaden your perspective,
change the narrative - against everything you have been
taught and sold to ever since you were born?
how do i undo the damage the words
“not good enough” has done to you?
how do i redefine your definition of beauty
into one that includes you?
how do i assure you that your reflection
isn’t your enemy?
but that she can be your best friend,
if you just let her in.
how do i persuade you that loving yourself
will be the best love story you’ll ever find?
how do i erase your negative self-talk that has
tattooed itself on all the walls of your mind?
how do i motivate you to go after your dreams?
but first, how do I even get you to start dreaming?
how do i convince you to listen to me?
but more importantly, how do i convince you to
start listening to your own heart?
