world | day twenty-six

I just want you to know

that this world is a better place with you in it.

yes, you.

I know. I know.

I know it doesn’t feel that way sometimes.

I know you think you messed up.

I know you think you don’t matter.

but oh, darling, you do.

there is a beauty in your eyes

that has nothing to do with their color

and everything to do with your soul

there is a strength in your steps

simply because you are still walking

and you hold your heart in your hands

try and unclench that fist, darling.

just a little.

just a bit.

because everything you are

doesn’t need to be hidden.

and this world can be harsh,

I know. I know.

but I promise you that bruises heal

and there are people pulling for you

and I just want to see you shine.

because I know you can.

and this world

is a better place

with your heart

and your soul

and your dreams

and your smile

in it.
